Iowans should have the most up-to-date information and easy access to new health care options. Iowa is offering a state health care portal at to help Iowans find answers to their questions or if you are eligible for assistance. Iowans can also access health care information by calling the Iowa Department of Human Services Contact Center at 1-855-889-7985 or by visiting their local DHS office.
