IMPORTANT UPDATE - TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF MCO CHOICE

AmeriHealth Caritas Iowa, Inc. withdrew from the hawk-i 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 currently accepting any additional 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 were transitioned to UnitedHealthcare effective December 1, 2017. Learn more by reading the sample member letter.

For more information, read the Press Release and the hawk-i FAQ.

Updated information will be posted as it is available. Please check back regularly.
