Louisiana Medicaid Services

Louisiana's Medicaid program covers many of the same things that private health insurance programs traditionally cover. Medicaid can also cover services to help "fill in the gaps" in Medicare and meet certain long-term care needs.

 

The list below includes things Louisiana Medicaid will cover in some or all cases. Some services are only offered to Medicaid recipients because of their age, family situation, transfer of resource requirements or other living arrangements. Also, some services are limited. If you click on a service listed on this page, you can find out:

 

  • How to get the service
  • Who can have the service
  • What is included in the service
  • Any other important information about the service
  • Where to call if you have questions about the service

 

 

Before you receive a service, you should ask your doctor or provider about limits to receiving the service or if the service needs to be “prior authorized.” (“Prior authorized” means Medicaid has to agree to pay for the service before it can be offered to a patient.)

 

Just because a service is not on the list does not mean that Medicaid will not cover it. Call the contact listed for the service group in question if a service is not listed.

 

There are special Medicaid benefits for children and youth with developmental disabilities. Click here to get information about these benefits and click here for information on locating these services.  If you want an overview of all services offered to those who are younger than 21, click here.

 

*You may appeal a Medicaid decision if all the services you requested were denied, if part of the services you requested were denied, if you were offered different services than you requested or if the service provider did not submit for full amount of services you requested.
