Request for NEW Consideration of Medical & Dental Benefit Coverage for Louisiana Medicaid

Providers and vendors may request that Louisiana Medicaid consider coverage of a new service, technology or other benefit. Please fill out and submit a request for consideration form in order to propose a new benefit for review and consideration of coverage.

Services that are experimental, non-FDA approved, investigational or cosmetic will not be considered for coverage.  A service may be deemed medically necessary and still not be covered under the Medicaid Program.  The Medicaid Director, in consultation with the Medicaid Medical Director, may consider authorizing services at her discretion on a case-by-case basis.

Please attach supporting documentation, such as publications, bibliography, and/or other evidence-based documents to a completed request for new consideration for a benefit to be considered for coverage by Louisiana Medicaid.

Relevant research studies submitted should be free of industry bias and non-industry supported.
