Amerigroup/MCO Choice

Amerigroup and MCO choice

Amerigroup Iowa has notified the Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS) that they have capacity to begin accepting new IA Health Link members.  DHS will be ending the temporary suspension of MCO choice. 


Members who initially chose Amerigroup Iowa and were temporarily transitioned to Fee-for-Service coverage will be assigned to Amerigroup Iowa effective March 1, 2018.  These members, approximately 10,000, should look for their welcome packets in the mail from Amerigroup Iowa.


New IA Health Link members will be able to choose Amerigroup Iowa for coverage effective May 1, 2018.  These members will receive enrollment packets in the mail with details on how to choose their MCO, as they have in the past.
