Iowa Healthlink ABA Program

United Behavioral Health (UBH), operating under the brand Optum, assumed management of the Medicaid autism program benefits for Iowa Healthlink members with coverage through UnitedHealthcare Community Plan effective 4/1/2016.    The State of Iowa and UnitedHealthcare have announced that we will exit the Iowa market, once our contract ends and our members have been transitioned, which is anticipated to be on June 30, 2019.

Please see our Iowa Medicaid Market Exit FAQs below for further information.
