Medicaid Behavioral Health Provider Resources

On Dec. 1, 2015, Louisiana Medicaid changed the way members get behavioral health services (mental health and substance use treatment). All Medicaid members now get their behavioral health services through a Health Plan. If they were not already enrolled in a Health Plan, they were enrolled in a Plan before Dec. 1, 2015 to get Medicaid behavioral health services. LDH's contract with Magellan ended on Nov. 30, 2015.
