Louisiana Health Insurance Consumer Help

Louisiana Health Insurance Consumer Help

Louisiana does not operate a Consumer Assistance Program under the Affordable Care Act. The consumer protections and benefits of the law still apply to you.

The agencies listed below can help you take advantage of some of these new protections and benefits. They can answer your questions about different types of coverage.

If you need health insurance, be sure to check out HealthCare.gov’s Plan Finder.  It will help you find and compare health care coverage options in your area.

If you have questions about insurance you bought for yourself and/or your family or you have insurance provided by an employer who does business only in Louisiana, contact:

Louisiana Department of Insurance
