Peoples Health Is About the Health of People on Medicare
At Peoples Health, providing quality Medicare healthcare is our core business. Only people with Medicare can join a Peoples Health plan because Medicare is all we do. And, according to our many satisfied members, we do it very well.* They will tell you about the generous benefits, exceptional care and dedicated member services that they’ve come to expect from Peoples Health.*
The mission of Peoples Health is to provide high quality, cost-effective healthcare services to the members we serve.
Peoples Health will become the premier, fully integrated healthcare delivery system of choice in the markets we serve.
Peoples Health Is Local
Our goal has never been to be the biggest. It has always been to be the best. Peoples Health is not available nationwide—or even statewide, for that matter. You have to be a resident of southeast Louisiana to enjoy the benefits of Peoples Health.
Peoples Health Is Owned and Managed by Physicians
Yes, that’s right; Peoples Health is owned by the physicians who provide services to our plan members. We are recognized nationally for innovative solutions that support the health and vitality of our plan members.
