Iowa Medicaid has switched to Managed Care. Almost everyone who has Medicaid in Iowa is now assigned to a Managed Care Organization. Managed Care Organizations are also called MCOs.
If your application for Medicaid or other help through the Iowa Department of Health and Human Services is denied or services reduced you can file an appeal. The Appeals Section provides an efficient way of ensuring that persons affected by the Department of Health and Human Services' decisions have access to due process of the law. There is no fee or charge for filing an appeal. You may need to seek review of a decision through your managed care organization before filing an appeal with the Iowa Department of Health and Human Services.
