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 members include:

Wellmark Synergy Health

Wellmark has announced its plan to halt sales of individual health insurance policies in 2018. Coverage will continue for the duration of 2017 for Wellmark Synergy Health members who purchased through the federal exchange or directly from Wellmark.

The University of Iowa Health Alliance will continue to offer Wellmark Synergy Health to small employer groups who purchase off exchange and plans on expanding into the large group market in 2018.
