You can now sign up for more services from the Iowa Department of Human Services on-line. D.H.S. spokesperson Ann Wiebers says it’s a major change in the information available. Wiebers says they’ve had an on-line application for the last two year, but they’ve expanded now so you can apply for all the financial and health programs on-line.
She says the system also includes a way to determine if you are eligible for services. Wiebers says you can do a pre-screening tool that will help you determine if you might be eligible for a program before you apply. And if you decide to apply, the website lets you get on-line and apply whenever you want without having to visit a D.H.S. office.
Wiebers says they hope the system will make things faster and more accurate in processing applications. Wiebers says once the application is submitted, it will automatically be in the system and workers can begin on it immediately. She says the process is still the same once the application is submitted.
The on-line site is called OASIS, or On-line Application for State of Iowa Services.
