Louisiana is named after Louis XIV, the king of France from 1643-1715.
When Rene-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle claimed this territory, he
named it La Louisiane, meaning land of Louis..The Commissioner of
insurance in Louisiana is Jim Donelon, along with the Department of Health
and Hospital Secretary Alan Levine, came up with a Long-term Care
Partnership Program, which will provide Louisiana residents with coverage
for their long term care needs. This is aimed to protect residents from
being forced to exhaust their assets to become Medicaid eligible for the sake
of needing long term care, for example nursing home care for a condition
such as Alzheimer's disease.
Why Should You Buy
Health Insurance has
continues to go up drastically. If
you do not have Louisiana medical insurance to help pay
bills, a serious injury or illness can be financially
devastating to you and your family. The most recent studies on
bankruptcy show that approximately 50% of all personal
bankruptcies are due to serious illness. Even if you are
ill for only three to six months the bills for Louisiana
health care can total from $30,000 to $200,000 and much more
in some cases. If you don't have Louisiana health insurance
coverage you can be exposed to high health care bills; or, if
you have too little or the wrong kind of coverage, you won't
have enough protection. Add this to the bills you were unable to
pay while unemployed and it is easy to see how bankruptcy
What To Look For When Buying Louisiana Health Insurance
Do not sign an application for Louisiana Health Insurance until
you review it carefully to be sure the answers are complete
and accurate. Make sure that the word insurance is
actually used and that there is no disclaimer stating that,
This product is not insurance, nor is it intended to
replace insurance. There are hundreds of insurance scams
occurring around the country offering coverage for $50 to
$130 to cover the whole family. Don't get caught in a scam.
If its too good to be true, its too good to be true.
When you buy an Louisiana Health Insurance policy, make the
check payable to the company, not the agent. Always pay by
check or money order, and write your policy number on the
payment. Do not give the agent your bank account number for
automatic withdrawals until you have verified the agent and
Louisiana Health Insurance company background
Tips for Avoiding
Fraudulent Louisiana Health Insurance Plans
The best tool for avoiding fraud is your phone. Call your
Health insurance department and find out whether the
insurance agent and Louisiana Health Insurance company
are licensed in the state.
Fraudulent plans are most often sold through direct mail
solicitations, fax, radio ads or over the Internet, so be
especially wary when responding to these solicitations.
If an Louisiana Health Insurance policy costs far less than
what other companies are charging, this could be a warning
sign. Its a good thing to comparison shop, but if a policy
is significantly cheaper, beware. If it sounds too good to
be true, it probably is.
Beware of an Louisiana Health Insurance agent or company that:
Refuses to provide proof of state licensure.
Insists on cash payments or automatic withdrawal.
States this is a "one-time deal" or your
for special savings."
Boasts that the coverage is available to anyone,
regardless of history or risk.
states something is covered without showing you the
details in a company publication.
Tells you no
other company provides this coverage or that the only
other company is much more expensive.
they can sell you any company but only has company
publications for one company.
