Medicaid Resources

University Health Insurance Waiver Requirements

Louisiana Medicaid meets the University’s standards for adequate insurance. This means students with Louisiana Medicaid are eligible to opt out of the Tulane-Sponsored Health Insurance Plan (T-SHIP) by receiving an approved waiver request.

Learn more about how to opt out of T-SHIP.

Medicaid and Campus Health Services

Students with Louisiana Medicaid can use the Health Center for Student Care, uptown or downtown.

The Health Center for Student Care is not a Medicaid provider. We are able to provide healthcare visits and some limited procedures to Louisiana Medicaid recipients at both the Uptown and Downtown locations. If we cannot provide a needed service, a referral coordinator will assist you with finding a provider to meet your needs. Referral coordination is a service we provide to all Tulane students.

LaHIPP Pilot Program

The Louisiana Health Insurance Premium Payment Program (LaHIPP) is for individuals who currently have Louisiana Medicaid and are eligible to enroll in a private health insurance plan. It is a private health insurance reimbursement program meaning that the program covers the cost of the private health insurance's premium, deductibles, and copays.

All Tulane students are eligible to enroll in private health insurance through Tulane. Therefore, students who have Louisiana Medicaid meet the criteria to apply for LaHIPP.

Learn more about the program and the application process.
