Renew My Medicaid

Keep your benefits. Renew on time.

Did you know you must renew your Medicaid benefits every year?

Since you’re enrolled in Iowa Health Link (Medicaid or Hawki), the state reviews your information each year to make sure you’re still eligible for benefits. When the time comes, it’s important that you act quickly.

As your health plan, we want to make sure you’re able to keep getting the care you need, when and where you need it. So, we try to make it easy for you by telling you what you need to know, what you need to do, and what you can expect.

When to renew

When your renewal date is near, you should get a renewal letter by mail from Iowa Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Be sure to open the letter and read the instructions. Review and update the renewal letter and return any requested information as soon as possible.

Molina Healthcare of Iowa will send you reminders, too, so you won’t miss a deadline.

Note: Make sure your contact information is up to date with Iowa Department of Health and Human Services and Molina Healthcare of Iowa so you don’t miss any important information about your renewal. To report a change or update your address, please call (877) 347-5678.
