Peoples Health History
Peoples Health is a Medicare Advantage organization. Established in 1994, Peoples Health was founded by medical providers and guided by physicians. Our primary focus is providing coverage to people with Medicare.
The choice of more than 80,000 people with Medicare in Louisiana.
Our Mission Statement
To provide high quality, cost-effective healthcare 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 any of 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 over 20 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, for complicated health issues, 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 healthcare 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 our regional service centers. These community-based centers provide a range of services from wellness assessments to educational presentations.
