Who is excluded from enrolling in IA Health Link?
(All)

Most Iowans covered by Iowa Medicaid will be enrolled in IA Health Link and will select a MCO. The benefits they receive from their selected MCO coverage will depend on the type of Medicaid coverage for which they qualify.

However, some Medicaid members are excluded from IA Health Link. Those Medicaid members are listed here:

  • Members who qualify for the Health Insurance Premium Payment program (HIPP).
  • Members who qualify for the Medicare Savings Program (MSP) only.
    • Qualified Medicare Beneficiary plan (QMB)
    • Specified Low-Income Medicare Beneficiary (SLMB)
  • Members who are on the three day emergency plan.
  • Members who are on the Medically Needy program also known as the spenddown program.
  • Presumptively eligible members (subject to change once ongoing eligibility is determined).
  • Members who receive eligibility retroactively for previous months.

Also see the IA Health Link Managed Care Member Booklet for more specifics.

If your residents/clients are unsure of the type of Medicaid program they are eligible for, please contact Iowa Medicaid Member Services for assistance at 800.338.8366 or 515.256.4606, Monday-Friday, from 8 am to 5 pm. Questions can also be emailed to Iowa Medicaid Member Services at IMEMemberServices@dhs.state.ia.us
