How to Renew
The Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS) will send you a Medicaid renewal form every 12 months. DHS mails out the renewal form one year from the date of your original application.
Medicaid renewal is required to evaluate your eligibility for Medicaid. Renewals must be completed directly with Iowa Medicaid. If you have questions about your renewal, contact your local DHS office at the number listed on your renewal form.
How to Apply
In order to enroll in our plan, you must apply for and be eligible for Medicaid. If you are eligible, the Department of Human Services will send you a letter to let you know. Then you can choose which health plan is best for you.
