Louisiana Medicaid is hosting a series of provider webinars on upcoming changes to Medicaid’s managed care program and the potential changes in health plan enrollment for Medicaid members. All providers that file claims with Louisiana Medicaid are invited to attend.

Six webinars are scheduled, but providers need only attend one of the webinars. The information shared will be the same for all webinars, focusing on the addition of a sixth health plan to the managed care program and the health plan auto assignment of most current members prior to January 1, 2023. This auto assignment means some members may be assigned a health plan that is different from their current health plan. There is no registration for the webinar, but there is limited capacity of 3,000 participants for each webinar. If that capacity is reached, no additional participants will be able to join. Medicaid may consider future webinars if providers are unable to attend due to capacity limitations.

There will be an opportunity for questions and answers during the webinar. Providers with questions needing a health plan response are reminded to consult Informational Bulletin 19-3 which provides contacts for escalation of provider issues.

The webinar will be made available online for those unable to attend.

 Webinars are scheduled for the following dates and times:

  • Friday September 2, 2022 (three separate webinars)
    • First webinar - 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.
    • Second webinar - 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.
