Louisiana Medicaid: Where to get care

We know you can get sick or hurt without warning. Your doctor can see you when you’re sick and when you’re well.

When your doctor is available

For most issues, your primary care provider (PCP):

  • Can give you the care you need
  • Can see you when you’re well and when you’re sick

When your doctor is not available

Go to a retail clinic or urgent care center

Retail clinics like CVS® and urgent care centers are:

  • Convenient – Most open early, close late, and have weekend hours
  • Quick – No appointment needed
  • Staffed by trained professionals – Get treatment for a range of issues, including urgent flu-like symptoms, moderate stomach pain, small cuts, minor injuries, ongoing diarrhea, and wheezing
