The Rayville-based Medicaid office supporting Richland and Madison Parishes will move to a new location on Monday, May 7 in an effort to provide more convenient service for area residents.

The new site offers a more centralized location that will ensure easier access to Medicaid and other state-sponsored services.  Located at 121 Ellington Drive in Rayville, the Medicaid office will be housed in a new building that counts several state agencies as neighbors, including the Department of Social Services Office of Family Support and Office of Community Services.

To ensure a smooth transition, Medicaid staff will be available at the Ellington Drive site and the previous location at 114 Morgan St., also in Rayville, throughout the day of the move.  The local Medicaid office phone number will remain the same: (318) 728-0344.
