Medicaid provides medical benefits to eligible low-income adults, children, pregnant women, elderly adults and people with disabilities. If you lost your job or are not able to go to work because of Hurricane Laura, you may be eligible for Medicaid.

If you live in the Lake Charles area and need help applying for Medicaid, join us on Wednesday, November 4, 2020. Medicaid application specialists will be at the Calcasieu Parish Health Unit to answer questions and help you apply for Medicaid. Look for us in the parking lot near the entrance.

If you are already a Medicaid Member, they will also be able to check your eligibility or update your information including your address, phone number and income.
