The state's Managed Care Ombudsman Program has released a new resource for Medicaid members, How to Be Your Own Best Advocate: A Guide on How to Navigate Managed Care in Iowa.  

Health insurance can be complicated, and advocating for yourself can be scary. Iowa's Long Term Care Ombudsman developed this Guide to help Iowans navigate the complex and ever-changing world of managed care.  It's written with all abilities in mind, with Disability Rights Iowa (DRI) and Iowans with Disabilities in Action (ID Action) helping with the development.  

The Guide is available online here or you can also request one be mailed to you by contacting ID Action or the Office of the Long Term Care Ombudsman:
