Medicaid Expansion

With the state's transition to Medicaid managed care, the Iowa Health and Wellness Plan has been discontinued.

The Iowa Legislature passed and the governor signed the Iowa Health and Wellness Plan (IHWP) in 2013 through Senate File 446.  The state’s Department of Human Services and Iowa Medicaid Enterprise (IME) submitted two demonstration plan waivers to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that were conditionally approved in December 2013.  Under the full IHWP there are two separate programs: the Iowa Wellness Plan for individuals ages 19-64 with incomes between 0 and 100 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) and Iowa Marketplace Choice Plan for individuals ages 19-64 with incomes between 101 and 138 percent of the FPL.  Beginning January 1, 2014, coverage and benefits will go into effect for qualified, enrolled individuals.
