My Place Louisiana

What is My Place Louisiana?

My Place Louisiana helps to safely transition physically disabled, elderly, and developmentally-disabled adults and children out of qualified institutions.  The program uses Medicaid funds that would have paid for eligible individuals to receive care in a nursing home, intermediate care facility, hospital, or other qualified facility, and uses those funds to establish them in home and community-based services. My Place Louisiana can be accessed either through the Office of Aging and Adult Services (OAAS) or the Office for Citizens with Developmental Disabilities (OCDD).
