Our Lady of the Lake becomes First Choice Provider for LSU Health Plan
Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center and Our Lady of the Lake Physician Group have entered into an agreement to serve as a First Choice Provider in the LSU First Choice Health Plan.
The contract allows those who are covered by the LSU health plan to access medical services at Our Lady of the Lake facilities and among hundreds of providers in the Our Lady of the Lake Physician Group with no out-of-pocket expenses.
In addition to Our Lady of the Lake and its physician group, the LSU First network also includes Lake-affiliated organizations such as Our Lady of the Lake Livingston, Lake After Hours and LSU Health Baton Rouge.
“As one of the largest employers in our region, LSU provides healthcare benefits to a significant portion of the Baton Rouge community,” said K. Scott Wester, chief executive officer of Our Lady of the Lake. “With our participation in the First Choice Network, those individuals will now have easier and broader access to healthcare services and decreased out-of-pocket costs.”
Our Lady of the Angels Hospital in Bogalusa and its physician group are also included in the agreement. As a result, more than 5,700 LSU First enrollees in the Baton Rouge and Bogalusa regions will have increased access to premier healthcare services.
