Iowa State Insurance Exchange
The Iowa Insurance Exchange (Marketplace) is called the Iowa Health Benefit Marketplace. The Iowa Health Benefit Exchange is a Partnership Marketplace jointly administered by the State and federal government, under the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
General information about the Iowa Health Benefit Exchange can be found at:
Learn more: Background
The Iowa Health Benefit Exchange is essentially a marketplace for individuals to shop for health insurance if they do not already have insurance coverage from another source. If individuals have insurance from another source such as employment, retirement benefits, or spousal benefits, they do not need to obtain it from the Marketplace.
HIV Providers:
Providers must contract with each of the Qualified Health Plans offered in the marketplace individually to participate fully in the Iowa Health Benefit Exchange.
This process is similar to enrolling in insurance or managed care organization provider networks. See below the list of insurers participating in the Iowa Health Benefit Exchange, and information about contacting them.
As an HIV provider, you may qualify for designation as an “Essential Community Provider (ECP).” The Qualified Health Plans participating in the Insurance Exchange (Marketplace) are required to contract with a minimum number of ECPs and Specialists to ensure network adequacy.
