Useful Information About Medicaid

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, The Health Center Referral Coordinator will assist you with finding a provider to meet your needs. Referral coordination is a service we provide to all Tulane students.

Contact the Health Center Referral Coordinator.
