Welcome to the Family!

Welcome to the Family!

Louisiana Healthcare Connections would like to welcome our members and providers throughout the state of Louisiana. Based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana Healthcare Connections provides personalized service and understands the local environment and issues our members and providers face. As a BAYOU HEALTH plan that is part of the BAYOU HEALTH program, Louisiana Healthcare Connections provides members with quality care and services they deserve. And we recognize the important role healthcare providers play in ensuring member access to high quality services..

The timing of when we begin serving members depends on where members live. Those eligible will get a packet in the mail from BAYOU HEALTH between December 2011 and May 2012 to choose a plan. Those who received a packet in December and are members of Louisiana Healthcare Connections will start receiving benefits from the plan on Feb. 1, 2012. Louisiana Healthcare Connections will send our members an enrollment kit that will include a plan ID card and a packet of information on our programs, benefits and services. The packet will arrive in late January or early February.

More information on the program, enrolling with us and timing can be found at www.bayouhealth.com or by calling 1-855-BAYOU-4U (1-855-229-6848) or TTY 1-855-LaMed4Me (1-855-526-6646).
