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.

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:
