Presumptive Eligibility Services
Are you aware of an uninsured child in Scott County with healthcare needs?
If the child is a Scott County resident without health insurance, we may be able to help. Staff at the Scott County Health Department has become certified by the Iowa Department of Human Services to process presumptive eligibility applications for uninsured children. Presumptive Eligibility (PE) provides Medicaid for a limited time while a formal Medicaid eligibility determination is being made by the Iowa Department of Human Services. The goal of the presumptive eligibility process is to offer immediate health care coverage to people likely to be Medicaid eligible, before there has been a full Medicaid determination. PE is based on a household’s statements regarding their circumstances and income. If determined to be eligible, the applicant will have temporary Medicaid eligibility during the presumptive eligibility period. For more information about presumptive eligibility services, please contact staff at the Scott County Health Department at 563-328-4114 or visit Iowa Department of Human Services.
