Informational Letters

Iowa Medicaid publishes provider bulletins called Informational Letters (ILs) that are necessary to clarify and explain new and existing programs and policy. All ILs published after Aug. 15, 2016, include a modifier after the IL number that designates which program(s) the IL applies to. The modifiers are: MC for Managed Care, FFS for Fee-for-Service, D for Dental, and CVD for Coronavirus Disease.

The latest 10 ILs appear below. To access other ILs, use the search box, or start an advanced search with the down arrow. To view all COVID-19 related ILs, choose “COVID-19” under “Provider Topics.”
