About Iowa Medicaid

This website will inform you about the IME, Providers Services and Members Services. Providers are the dedicated health care providers that serve the health care needs of members of Iowa’s Medicaid program. The Provider web pages serve as the gateway for providers to access important tools, resources and announcements. Members are the individuals who receive Medicaid to help pay for their medical and health care costs. The Member web pages serve as the gateway for members to gain access to important information such as how to apply and find a provider.
