Iowa Family Planning Network

  • Iowa Family Planning Network (modified: 3 years ago)
    The state of Iowa has sought to amend its Family Planning Network demonstration to provide the family planning services offered in the demonstration within a managed care delivery system pursuant to waiver authority provided by section 1915(b) of the Social Security Act. The state proposes that this delivery system change will ensure high quality, efficient, and coordinated care to Iowa's Medicaid population. The state is not making any other changes to the demonstration. The federal public comment period will be open from September 21, 2015 through October 20, 2015.
  • Iowa Family Planning Network Renewal (modified: 3 years ago)
    The state of Iowa has submitted a request to renew their Iowa Family Planning Network demonstration without changes. The program provides family planning services for women and men under 55 years of age, with household income that does not exceed 300 percent of the federal poverty level. Postpartum women who have concluded a Medicaid-covered pregnancy and postpartum period are also eligible. The goals of the demonstration are to reduce the number of unintended pregnancies and to lengthen the intervals between pregnancies for better maternal and newborn health. The federal public comment period will run from July 19, 2016 through August 18, 2016.
