The quality of care and services you receive is important to your everyday health. However, navigating the managed care system can be complex. The Managed Care Ombudsman Program can help.
The Managed Care Ombudsman Program advocates for the rights and needs of Medicaid managed care members in Iowa who live or receive care in a health care facility, assisted living program or elder group home, as well as members enrolled in one of Medicaid's seven home and community-based services (HCBS) waiver programs (AIDS/HIV, Brain Injury, Children’s Mental Health, Elderly, Health and Disability, Intellectual Disability and Physical Disability).
Through advocacy, self-empowerment and education by the Managed Care Ombudsman Program, each Medicaid managed care member in Iowa will be treated with dignity and respect and will have his or her rights honored.
