About YHI

Insurance can be confusing. We’re here to help.

Your Health Idaho is an online marketplace that allows Idaho families and small businesses to shop, compare, and choose the health insurance coverage that’s right for them.

Choosing a health plan can be complicated, but at Your Health Idaho we have the tools and resources you need to find a plan that fits your needs. Your Health Idaho is the only place where Idahoans can receive a tax credit to help offset the cost of getting covered.

Our Mission

The mission of Your Health Idaho is to maintain maximum control of Idaho’s health insurance marketplace at minimal cost to its citizens.

Our History

Your Health Idaho was established following the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2010. The ACA requires 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, rather than use the federally facilitated marketplace.

Your Health Idaho is an independent entity overseen by an 19-member board of Idahoans which includes insurance agents, physicians, business owners, legislators and non-profit representatives. The directors of the Idaho Department of Insurance and the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare also serve on the board as non-voting members.

The Your Health Idaho team manages day-to-day activities and works to ensure long-term success for Idaho and Idahoans.
