News and Updates

3/11/2015 Update from Your Health Idaho:

In light of recent news from, Your Health Idaho wants to remind customers and Idahoans who may be interested in buying health insurance the deadline to sign up for coverage has passed for 2015. It was recently announced that states with health insurance exchanges run by the federal government will have a special open enrollment period for individuals who want to purchase health insurance in 2015 after paying a fee for not being covered last year.

After careful consideration and coordination with key stakeholders, Your Health Idaho has decided not to offer a special enrollment period for individuals who pay a penalty for not enrolling in health insurance coverage in 2014.

Now that Open Enrollment has ended, Idahoans can sign up for health insurance coverage in 2015 if they experience a qualifying life event, such as getting married, moving or having a baby. A complete list of those qualifying life events and more information about special enrollment periods can be found Idahoans who have questions or need additional assistance should click on Find Help Near You to find an agent or broker near them who can assist.
