Healthy Behaviors


The New Dental Wellness Plan (As of July 1, 2017)

Healthy Beha​viors:

Keep your Full Benefits and pay no monthly premiums. All Dental Wellness Plan members have full dental benefits during the first year. You must complete ‘Healthy Behaviors’ during the first year to keep your Full Benefits in the next year.

‘Healthy Behaviors’ include completion of both:

  1. Oral Health Self-Assessment
  2. Preventive Service

What Happens If I Don’t Complete My Healthy Behaviors? Depending on your income, you may have to pay a monthly premium after the first year if you don’t complete ‘Healthy Behaviors.’ Complete ‘Healthy Behaviors’ each year to waive your monthly premiums for the next year.

If you have a monthly premium after your first year and do not make payments, you will only have emergency dental benefits.

Iowa Health and Wellness Plan members also have ‘Healthy Behaviors’ to complete for medical coverage. Find information on these ‘Healthy Behaviors’ for medical here.

How Much Will I Have To Pay? Monthly premiums for the Dental Wellness Plan are no more than $3 per month. If you are unable to pay, you may check the hardship box on your monthly statement and return the payment coupon OR call Iowa Medicaid Member Services at 1-800-338-8366.
