Louisiana Peoples Health Medicare Advantage Plans

Peoples Health plans are HMO-POS and PPO Medicare Advantage plans in Louisiana offered by Peoples Health, a UnitedHealthcare Company. These plans cover features and benefits in addition to those included in Original Medicare. Members in some areas may have different plans from which to choose. The plans often include an integrated Medicare Part D prescription drug benefit and none require referrals.

Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plans have a defined network of contracted local physicians and hospitals to provide member care. Generally, members must use these care providers to receive benefits for covered services, except in emergencies.

Point of Service (HMO-POS) plans include all the features of HMO plans plus the ability to go outside the contracted network for certain health care services - typically at a higher cost. Peoples Health POS plans only cover out-of-network dental care.

Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans offer members access to a network of contracted physicians and hospitals, but also allow them the flexibility to receive covered services from outside of the contracted network, usually at a higher cost.

Peoples Health also offers dual special needs plans in Louisiana. Find more information here.
