Louisiana Health Access Program


The Louisiana Health Access Program is a program that provides assistance with drug and insurance costs.  

LaHAP is funded by AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAP) to provide access to medications for qualifying noninsured individuals and assistance with cost shares for insured individuals.  

These Louisiana ADAP funds are received from the Health Resources Service Administration (HRSA).

LaHAP can be contacted directly at 504.568.7474 or by visiting www.lahap.org.


LaHAP assistance is provided through two different programs:  


(Louisiana Drug Assistance Program)
This program covers drug costs for uninsured individuals.  It also covers drug copays, coinsurances, and deductibles for insured individuals (including Medicare and Medicare Part D).

(Health Insurance Program)
Covers health insurance plan premiums, non-drug copays, coinsurances, and deductibles for insured individuals.

Effective March 2015, enrollment expiration for all LaHAP services is based on the approval date and six (6) months after the approval date.

Please speak with your Case Manager to apply. 

Note:  If you have ONLY Louisiana Medicaid (Bayou Health) as your insurance, you do not need to enroll in LaHAP.
