Louisiana Medicaid is keeping members covered during the federal and state declared Coronavirus (COVID-19) Public Health Emergency.
Under federal legislation, current Medicaid members will not lose coverage for any reason other than death, permanently moving out of state, or requesting an end to their coverage. If a member receives a letter saying their coverage will end on April 30, 2020, they will receive another notice letting them know their coverage will continue.
Income from federal stimulus checks or additional unemployment benefits related to Coronavirus also will not affect Medicaid eligibility.
Medicaid members can check their case status online at MyMedicaid.la.gov or by calling Medicaid Customer Service at 1-888-342-6207.
