Your Health Idaho Background
Your Health Idaho was established following the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), which Congress passed and the President signed into law in 2010. It required each state to establish a health insurance marketplace where consumers can shop for insurance coverage. The Idaho Legislature voted in March 2013 to create our own, state-based marketplace, instead of having the federal government run one in Idaho.
Your Health Idaho is an independent entity overseen by an 18-member board of Idahoans which includes brokers and agents, physicians, business owners, legislators and non-profit representatives. The directors of the Department of Insurance and the Department of Health and Welfare are also part of the board as non-voting members.
The Your Health Idaho staff manages day-to-day activities and works to ensure long-term success for you and for Idaho.
