Iowa Medicaid COVID-19 Unwind

The Iowa Medicaid COVID-19 Unwind is composed of two pieces:

  • The continuous coverage unwind, which began in February 2023, and
  • the public health emergency (PHE) unwind, which is slated to end on May 11, 2023.

It is important for Medicaid members and providers to understand the differences between the two processes and know what is needed of them as each extended benefit unwinds.

During the COVID-19 public health emergency, Iowa Medicaid was required to keep continuous healthcare coverage for all members and expand Medicaid benefits to support the Medicaid population during the emergency.
