Governor’s Office of Elderly Affairs
The Louisiana Governor’s Office of Elderly Affairs (GOEA) was created in 1956 as the Commission on Aging by the Louisiana Legislature to act as the state’s visible advocate and focal point for all matters pertaining to the aging population. GOEA collects facts, statistics, and conducts special studies on conditions pertaining to the employment, health, financial status, recreation, social adjustment, or other conditions affecting the welfare of the aged. This information helps the agency to keep abreast of the latest developments in aging throughout the nation and interpret such findings to the public.

This is a Medicare patient resource center (Note: they do not sell or provide healthcare plans), it is their mission to help people with disabilities to get the most out of Medicare. Many are not aware that Medicare also provides benefits for people living with disabilities regardless of their age. To help highlight this program for those under 65 with disabilities, we have published a comprehensive guide to understanding eligibility, coverage, and, most importantly, how to navigate the enrollment process.
