Don’t lose your health benefits

You must renew your Medicaid benefits every year. Watch for a Healthy Louisiana renewal notice in the mail. You’ll get it about the same time of year as when you first applied for benefits.

Just call Healthy Louisiana at 1-888-342-6207 (TTY: 1-800-220-5404). Or visit the LDH website for more info.

What you may need to renew coverage

What you may need to renew coverage

When you renew, you may need to include these things with your application: 

  • Your most recent pay stubs with your gross wages, or a letter from your employer on company letterhead with your gross wages
  • Proof of any other form of income (self-employment, rental, alimony, etc.)
  • Names and birthdates of all members in your house
  • Social Security numbers of all members in your house
  • Info on other health insurance you may have

These things help confirm the info you provided. To enroll, you’ll need to provide this info about yourself and your family members.

In person 

You can get help with the renewal process in person. Just contact a Medicaid Regional Office near you. You’ll want to call before you visit in person to be sure your site is open. 

Why renew on time every year?

Renewing on time every year allows you to:


  • Keep health care coverage for you and your family
  • Enjoy peace of mind, knowing you and your family are covered
  • Stay as healthy as you can, so you can be there for your family

Keep your info up to date

After you renew, make sure that any info we have from you stays current. This allows you to keep the coverage you already have. Your info may include your address, employment status and other details.
