Department of Health seeking emergency contracts for Medicaid health plans

Choose a Health Plan/DoctorIn August, the Louisiana Department of Health announced it is moving to implement emergency contracts with the five health plans that are currently under contract to serve the state’s 1.5 million Medicaid recipients.
