The University of Iowa Health Care will join the HealthPartners UnityPoint Health health care plan, making its providers available to more Medicare patients in Iowa and Illinois.
Starting Jan. 1, University of Iowa Health Care — which includes the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics and the Stead Family Children’s Hospital — will be included in the HealthPartners UnityPoint Health provider network for Medicare Advantage plans.
The health plan, which entered the market four years ago, is a joint venture between the Minnesota-based health insurance company HealthPartners and UnityPoint Health, the Iowa-based care system.
