Payers

Our changing health care environment creates new opportunities to collaborate with payers as we work towards a simpler, more effective, and more efficient system of care. The University of Iowa Health Alliance has collaborated with insurance carriers to focus on what matters most: better-coordinated care at lower costs. Your local health care providers – backed by Iowa’s only academic medical center.

Current payers that utilize University of Iowa Health Alliance providers include:
