IMPORTANT UPDATE--TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF MCO CHOICE

AmeriHealth Caritas Iowa, Inc. withdrew from the IA Health Link managed care program effective November 30, 2017. AmeriHealth Caritas members have been assigned to UnitedHealthcare. The department has put in place a temporary suspension of Managed Care Organization (MCO) choice.
 
Previously the Department notified members they would be able to choose Amerigroup Iowa. Due to concerns with capacity, Amerigroup Iowa is not accepting any additional members at this time. This also includes all new IA Health Link members. In the future members will be able to choose from multiple MCOs. Members will be notified when that choice is available. 
 
AmeriHealth Caritas’ members transitioned to UnitedHealthcare effective December 1, 2017. Learn more by reading the sample member letter, the Press Release and the FAQs below.

The IA Health Link managed care program gives you health coverage through a Managed Care Organization (MCO). An MCO is a health plan that makes sure you get the care you need from their network of providers. The MCOs have a large network of providers across the state.
