Health Care

Every Louisianan, regardless of income, race or ZIP code, deserves access to high-quality, affordable health care. Healthy people help create healthy communities with productive workers.

Medicaid is a state-federal program that helps ensure children, people with low incomes and people with disabilities have access to health coverage. More than 2 million people in Louisiana get their health care through Medicaid, including more than half of all insured Louisiana children.

We should ensure that Medicaid is available to everyone who qualifies without unnecessary barriers and that every Louisianan has the ability to get appropriate care in the communities where they live and work.
