Medicaid Managed Care Resource Guide
The Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS) released a Notice of Intent to Award Contracts to the following managed care organizations:
WellCare of Iowa was initially awarded a contract as well. On January 22, 2016, a district judge denied WellCare’s request to continue
operations until the MCO can appeal a state
arbiter’s decision to terminate its contract.
