VNS of Iowa's navigators help uninsured people find health coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Our dedicated navigators are trained and licensed by the Iowa Insurance Division to help you understand your health coverage options. We then help you enroll in a Marketplace plan that meets your needs and fits your budget. Marketplace open enrollment takes place from November 1, 2017 – December 15, 2017. For more information, or to meet with one of our navigators, please call us at 515-288-1516.

Please note: Those eligible for Medicaid and hawk-i may apply at any time of the year and are not restricted to qualifying events outside of the open enrollment period.

In Iowa children up to age 19 are eligible for free or low-cost health insurance through hawk-i. Children in a family of four earning $73,000 a year may qualify. Regular check-ups, immunizations, doctor and dentist visits, hospital care, mental health services, prescriptions and more are covered.
