Presumptive Eligibility

Presumptive Eligibility is temporary Medicaid health insurance that starts the same day that you apply.  It helps you to do things like go to the doctor or fill a prescription, while you wait for the Iowa Department of Human Services to review your application for ongoing Medicaid.
