Louisiana Medicaid Bond


Legislators in Louisiana State have set a new law concerning coordinated care networks. The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals implemented regulations for its Medicaid program regarding coordinated care networks; they are organized health care delivery systems which are meant to enhance access to care services. Any networks functioning under a “shared savings model” are required to obtain a surety bond to guarantee the management fee for the network. The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals will establish the required bond amount.
