Wednesday, May 7, 2014  |  Contact: Bayou Health (225) 342-7878

On November 29, 2012, the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH) issued a Request For Information (RFI) seeking creative, innovative and viable strategies that would assist Louisiana with restructuring the organization and delivery of Medicaid services  to individuals receiving  Medicaid-funded Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS). The key objectives of restructuring are to:

  • Improve quality of services and health outcomes;
  • Decrease fragmentation and improve coordination of care;
  • Create a system that utilizes proven and/or promising practices;
  • Refocus the system in order to increase choice and provide more robust living options for those who need LTSS and their families; and
  • Rebalance the system in order to meet the growing demand for services within the existing level of expenditures for the LTSS population.
