Providers are responsible for verifying the members' eligibility through the Louisiana Medicaid Eligibility Verification System. (MEVS)
Providers may also visit Provider & Plan Resources to access the Medicaid & Enrollment Portal
Eligibility should be verified prior to the first appointment, throughout the course of treatment and prior to submitting claims.
When applicable, hard copies of the MEVS printout should be maintained in the member's medical record.
You may also call Magellan's Customer Service Department at 1-800-424-4489 to check eligibility.
Providers should also be advised that the verification of eligibility does not guarantee claims payment. Payment of benefits is subject to the member's eligibility on the date service is rendered and any other contractual provisions of the plan. Payment is also subject to prior authorization guidelines.
