Choosing a Health Plan


The IA Health Link managed care program gives you health coverage through a Managed Care Organization (MCO) that you get to choose. An MCO is a health plan that makes sure you get the care you need from their network of providers. You can choose from the MCOs listed below. If you do not wish to choose one, the state will assign an MCO for you. 

For more information about each MCO and their network of providers, please contact them directly.
