Hurricane Ida Information for Medicaid Providers

Last updated on 8/30/2021

Texas providers rendering services to evacuees from Louisiana due to Hurricane Ida may complete the Hurricane Emergency Expedited Application with Louisiana Medicaid to receive reimbursement for services rendered to Louisiana Medicaid clients for the fee-for-service program.

If providing care to a Louisiana managed care enrollee, providers will need to contact the clients’ managed care organization (MCO) to be reimbursed for services provided. Refer to the Healthy Louisiana Hurricane Ida Provider Assistance Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document for MCO credentialing contact information.

Answers 1, 2, and 10 of the Louisiana FAQ are specific to enrollment and eligibility verification:
