Iowa Medicaid/IA Health Link

Starting April 1, 2016, administration of Iowa’s Medicaid program will transition to 3 managed care organizations as part of Governor Branstad’s Iowa Medicaid Modernization initiative. The program, now called IA Health Link, will combine physical health, behavioral health, and long-term care in one program across Iowa.

IPA has created two important resources to assist our members with the pharmacy-specific aspects of the new program (member login required to access each one):

Iowa Medicaid FAQ - Find answers to important questions for contracts, procedures, policy and enrollment. This page is continually updated.

MCO Pharmacy Reference Grid - Quick access to contact and policy information for all three of the contracted MCOs.
