Do you have a Peoples Health story or thought to share? Tell us about it.

Throughout the years, many of our members have been kind enough to share their stories with us.  When we can, we like to share their experiences in the form of photos, articles, and social media posts.  We have always found that the best way to tell our story is to let our members speak for us.

What is Peoples Health?

The choice of over 80,000 Medicare beneficiaries in Louisiana.

Founded in 1994 by medical providers and physicians, Peoples Health chose to focus on one thing: helping people with Medicare. That focus has helped Peoples Health become one of the largest Medicare Advantage organizations in Louisiana.*

For us, success is built on prevention and early detection. It’s built on easy access to care and face-to-face, personal attention. It’s built on providing free health education and fitness classes in the communities we serve. But the best measure of success is how much we can help our plan members reach their own health goals. We want you to be as healthy as you can be.

We’ve heard many times from our plan members that their health means everything to them. You probably feel the same way.

Whether you’re healthy and fit or you’ve got a complicated condition, Peoples Health wants you to enjoy the best health possible.

A good first step is understanding your options. We hope the information on our website will help you learn a little more about Medicare and give you a better understanding of Peoples Health as a way of receiving your Medicare coverage.

What is Medicare Advantage?

As good as Original Medicare is, it doesn’t cover everything.

With just Medicare, if you’re hospitalized — even for one day — you’ll face a $1,408 deductible.* For Part B services like doctor visits, there’s another deductible, and after that you’re generally responsible for 20 percent of the cost of those services.

If you want to add Part D prescription drug coverage, you have to join a Part D plan — usually with its own monthly premium.

Medicare Advantage plans (or Medicare Part C) can help reduce your costs. These plans generally offer more benefits than Original Medicare and often include Part D. Medicare Advantage plans are overseen by Medicare and are paid by Medicare to administer your benefits.

Nationwide, over 22 million people have chosen a Medicare Advantage plan for their Medicare coverage.**
