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

The Health Center for Student Care does not participate as a Medicaid provider. Because we cannot bill Medicaid for our services, we work closely with students to connect them with nearby community providers that do accept Medicaid. The Health Center Referral Coordinator has a wealth of knowledge about the New Orleans health care landscape and can assist students with finding the best providers to meet their needs. Referral coordination is a service we provide to all Tulane students, regardless of insurance plan type.

Contact the Health Center Referral Coordinator.
