Choose a health plan and a provider
You will choose a health plan for each family member who has Medicaid or LaCHIP. A health plan is a group of doctors, nurses, and others who work together to provide health care. All plans offer the same core medical, mental health and substance use treatment services. The plans also offer extra benefits and services.
You will also choose a primary care provider (PCP) in your health plan. Your PCP is the doctor, nurse practitioner, or clinic that gives you care. Your PCP will get to know you and your health care needs. The PCP will give you most of your care, keep your records, and send you to specialists when you need them. You will also get free preventive care, like checkups and education, to help keep you well.
