Our Mission Statement

To provide high quality, cost-effective health care services to the members we serve.


Our Background and Beliefs

In 1997, in the formative years of Medicare Advantage (at the time called “Medicare + Choice”), Peoples Health launched a “demonstration project” to help Medicare test the Medicare Advantage concept. That pioneering project — that health plan — is now one of Louisiana’s largest Medicare Advantage plans. It’s a true homegrown success story.

For us, success is built on many things and measured in many ways. It’s 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 communities we serve. But the best measure of success is when we are able to help our members reach their own health goals.

We want you to be as healthy as you can be.

To deliver on that goal, we use a team approach. That’s why we say Peoples Health is Your Medicare Health Team.

Your Medicare Health Team

In many years of serving people with Medicare, we’ve seen how health issues — sometimes very complicated health issues — can surface quite unexpectedly. We’ve also learned that what works is teamwork.

Our plan members are backed by a Medicare health team made up of local healthcare professionals to assist and help coordinate care. From simple reminders about annual screenings to more complex care coordination, we work with our plan members to help them enjoy the best health possible.

Our regional teams include physicians and pharmacists, nurse practitioners, social workers and other health care professionals — all available to meet face-to-face with our plan members when and where needed.

One of the places members can meet with their health team is at one of our service centers. These community-based centers provide a range of services from wellness assessments to educational presentations.

What are star ratings?

Medicare developed its star rating system to give people with Medicare an objective measure of a plan’s performance. The rating system gives people a way to consider quality as well as cost as they make enrollment decisions. Medicare evaluates plans every year and scores them on a scale of 1 to 5 stars, with 5 stars indicating the highest performance. The results are posted every fall, usually in October.

Peoples Health is a proven leader in health care quality.

Medicare started rating Medicare Advantage plans in 2008, and Peoples Health has always scored high. For four years, from 2018 to 2021, we earned a rating of 4.5 stars out of 5. For 2022, 2023 and 2024, Peoples Health earned 5 stars!*

Our 5-star rating is an overall rating – a combination of the two broad categories of health plan and drug plan quality.
