Navigators for a Healthy Louisiana, the official federally-facilitated health insurance marketplace for Louisiana, can help you find a plan that fits you and your family’s healthcare needs AND your budget. While the Navigators program is unable to offer as much in-person enrollment assistance as they have in the past, you can request free enrollment assistance from a navigator if you live in these service areas.
If you live outside of the Navigator service areas, contact one of the organizations below for free, in-person enrollment assistance, OR use the online Get Covered Connector to search for help by zip code.
