Louisiana Health Care Commission
Mission Statement


There is hereby created the Louisiana Health Care Commission to review and study the availability and affordability of health care in the state. The commission shall specifically examine the rising costs of health care in the state, including, but not limited to, the cost of administrative duplication, the costs associated with excess capacity and duplication of medical services, and the costs of medical malpractice and liability and shall examine the formation and implementation of insurance pools that better assure citizens the ability to obtain health insurance at affordable costs and encourage employers to obtain health care benefits for their employees by increased bargaining power and economies of scale for better coverage and benefit options at reduced costs. Further, the commission shall examine the implementation issues related to national health care reform initiatives.
