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.
