Iowa Medicaid Changes | UnityPoint Health

Important Information for Iowa Medicaid Health Plan Members

As your trusted health care partner, we want to update you regarding our participation with one of the Iowa Medicaid health plans. We are pleased to announce that UnityPoint Health and Amerigroup have reached an agreement, and UnityPoint Health will continue to be part of the Amerigroup provider network in 2018.

This means, as an Amerigroup member, your care can continue with UnityPoint Health as usual, and there is nothing you need to do. Whether you use UnityPoint Clinic for primary or specialty care, UnityPoint at Home for home health services, or UnityPoint Health hospitals, our providers will remain in the Amerigroup network. You don't need to make any changes to your doctors or your health plan to continue your care with UnityPoint Health if you have the Amerigroup Medicaid plan.

If you have questions about your health plan, call Amerigroup at the number on your insurance card. Or, if you need information about the Medicaid program, call Iowa Medicaid Member Services toll-free at (800) 338-8366 or (515) 256-4606 in the Des Moines area Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; or visit the website at
