Medicaid Provider Manuals
The intent of the provider services manual is to present useful information and guidance to providers participating in the Louisiana Medicaid Program. The first chapter, "General Information and Administration" contains information applicable to all providers. Each remaining chapter is dedicated to a specific program or service and outlines the policies, procedures, qualifications, services and limitations to that service or program.
