What you Need to Apply

When you apply for coverage through Your Health Idaho, you will need to provide certain information about yourself and your household. To make the process easier, have the following information on hand for all household members when applying for coverage:

  • Legal names
  • Birthdates
  • Social Security Numbers
  • Proof of citizenship or immigration status
  • Proof of tribal status
  • IRS tax returns for previous years
  • Employer and income information (i.e. W-2s, pay stubs)
  • Current insurance policy information (include any health insurance or employer sponsored health coverage you or any other household members are eligible for)

Estimate Your Savings

Your Health Idaho is the only place where Idahoans can receive a tax credit to help offset the monthly cost of coverage. Some Idahoans may also qualify for cost-sharing reductions, which lower out-of-pocket costs for things like co-pays and prescriptions.

Eligibility for these programs is determined by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare and is based on household size, income, and other factors. Before you start your application for coverage, visit the tax credit estimator to see if you could be eligible for cost savings.

If you need help along the way, certified agents, brokers, and enrollment counselors are available to help you free of charge. Find free help in your area.
