November 21, 2022 - Baton Rouge, La.

AmeriHealth Caritas Louisiana, a Healthy Louisiana Medicaid managed care health plan and part of the AmeriHealth Caritas Family of Companies, has been selected as a “Best Place to Work” by the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report for the seventh year in a row.  AmeriHealth Caritas Louisiana was recognized as one of the best large companies (more than 250 employees) in the Capital Region again this year and was the only Healthy Louisiana Medicaid health plan to make the 2022 list.

The awards program is a project of the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report, the Greater Baton Rouge SHRM (an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management), and WORKFORCE Research Group.  As part of the award process, AmeriHealth Caritas Louisiana associates completed questionnaires about the business, its community presence, and the benefits offered to its associates. WORKFORCE Research Group analyzes and ranks participating businesses in eight areas: leadership and planning; corporate culture and communications; role satisfaction; work environment; relationships with supervisors; training, development and resources; pay and benefits; and overall engagement.

“The unwavering commitment to service is at the heart of our mission to help members get care, stay well and to build healthy communities. It’s what makes AmeriHealth Caritas Louisiana a place where associates tell us they can do their best work,” said AmeriHealth Caritas Louisiana Market President Kyle Viator. 

Associates receive benefits such as continuing education tuition and healthy lifestyle reimbursement programs, an employee referral program, adoption assistance, and personal and professional development offerings. Associates also have access to:

  • No-cost “lunch-and-learn” seminars on emotional, financial, and physical health;
  • Consultations with a registered dietitian; and
  • Preventive health activities such as flu shots.

In addition, AmeriHealth Caritas Louisiana sponsors public events that encourage its associates to volunteer in their communities.
