Louisiana’s Health Insurance Marketplace 


• If you do not have health insurance through your employer or Medicaid/Medicare, you can purchase affordable health care coverage through the Marketplace (health insurance exchange). 
• If you’re lower income, you may qualify for lower or no cost coverage. 
• All Marketplace plans must cover many preventive services without charging you a copayment. This is true even if you haven't met your yearly deductible. For a list of all the preventative services for women, click below.


• The marketplace allows you compare coverage options side-by-side. 
• Enroll by December 23rd for insurance that will be effective in January. 
• Apply online, by mail, or in-person with a navigator. Telephone help and online chat are available 24/7 to help you complete your application. 
• Downloadable and paper applications are available.
