Medical Assistance (Medicaid – Title XIX) provides medically necessary health care coverage for financially needy adults, children, parents with children, people with disabilities, elderly people and pregnant women. The goal is for members to live healthy, stable and self-sufficient lives. The Department implemented the IA Health Link managed care program for the majority of the Medicaid population on April 1, 2016. Most Medicaid members are now being served by two managed care organizations (MCOs); AmeriGroup and Iowa Total Care. The Iowa Medicaid Enterprise (IME) continues to operate a limited Fee-For-Service (FSS) program for the Medicaid members not enrolled in managed care. DHS has contracted with MCOs to provide comprehensive health care services including physical health, pharmacy, behavioral health, and long term supports and services. This single system of care promotes the delivery of efficient, coordinated and high quality health care and established accountability in health care coordination.
