April 1 Medicaid managed care will start in Iowa. "Member ID cards will be arriving soon from the new health plans.
Members were asked to make a selection in health plan by February 17, 2016. Since that time, members have been sent a Confirmation of Coverage letter, and soon will receive their Amerigroup Iowa Inc., AmeriHealth Caritas Iowa Inc. or United Healthcare Plan of the River Valley Inc. member ID cards.
Please note: If a member's eligibility has changed since the selection date, or if they have made a different choice in health plan, they may not immediately receive a card, could receive a card in error, or receive duplicate cards.
Members should call Iowa Medicaid Member Services, or their selected health plan, with any questions about changes in eligibility and choice in plan that may impact their receipt of member ID cards." (Medicaid e-News release March 11, 2016 Issue 10, volume 1)
Just wanted you aware of this information in case families ask you for assistance.
