Health Insurance Marketplace in Idaho
If you live in Idaho, Your Health Idaho is the Health Insurance Marketplace to serve you. Instead of HealthCare.gov, you’ll use the Your Health Idaho website to apply for coverage, compare plans, and enroll. You can apply as early as October 1, 2013. Visit Your Health Idaho now to learn more.
Beginning Oct 1, the Health Insurance Marketplace will make it easy for Idahoans to compare qualified health plans, get answers to questions, find out if they are eligible for lower costs for private insurance or health programs like Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and enroll in health coverage.
