Click Here for information regarding dental benefits covered by each of Healthy Louisiana's 5 health plans

Healthy Louisiana (previously called Bayou Health) is the way most of Louisiana's Medicaid and LaCHIP recipients receive health care services. In Healthy Louisiana, Medicaid recipients enroll in a Health Plan. These Plans differ from one another in several ways, including their provider networks, referral policies, health management programs and extra services and incentives offered. Each of these Plans is accountable to the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH).
Healthy Louisiana features five health plans, and each offers dental benefits for Adults 21 years and older, beyond the traditional adult denture services and dental care for children and adolescents that have been available under Medicaid in Louisiana previously.

The five Healthy Louisiana plans are:
  • Aetna Better Health
  • Healthy Blue (formerly Amerigroup Real Solutions)
  • Amerihealth Caritas Louisiana
  • Louisiana Healthcare Connections
  • UnitedHealthcare Community Plan
A dentist is NOT required to be a certified provider with MCNA (broad coverage to children under 21 years of age) to enroll as a Healthy Louisiana dental provider. Because of this, there is an opportunity for dentists to participate in one or more of these Healthy Louisiana plans.
