The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) is offered through the Healthy and Well Kids in Iowa program, also known as hawk-i. Iowa offers hawk-i health coverage for uninsured children of working families.

No family pays more than $40 a month. Some families pay nothing at all. A child who qualifies for hawk-i health insurance will get their health coverage through a Managed Care Organization (MCO). 

The hawk-i program includes two health plans, or MCOs: 

  • Amerigroup Iowa, Inc.

  • UnitedHealthcare Plan of the River Valley, Inc.
