UnitedHealthcare’s mission is “to help people live healthier lives.” We have operated health plans in Iowa since the 1980s, serving a wide range of Iowans, including those who get their coverage through employers, the armed forces and Medicare plans. We have served children in the Iowa hawk-i program since 2000. We are dedicated to promoting health for all Iowans in every stage of their lives.

UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Iowa is part of a national organization operating in 24 states. We offer distinctive health care programs tailored to the needs of Medicaid/CHIP beneficiaries, while leveraging a broad array of capabilities to serve our members and our community.

We leverage national experience at the local level. UnitedHealthcare Community & State serves over 5 million Medicaid/CHIP beneficiaries across the nation. In many of our states, we are responsible for integration of behavioral and medical benefits under Medicaid. Our member-centric, field-based care management systems have gotten results.
