There are two windows of time you can actively shop and enroll in Your Health Idaho plans; during Open Enrollment, or when you qualify for a Special Enrollment period.

What is Open Enrollment?

The period from October 15 to December 15 each year, when Idahoans can enroll in a private health insurance plan for the coming year. During Open Enrollment, Idahoans already enrolled with Your Health Idaho can make changes or renew their coverage for the next year. LEARN MORE >

What is a Special Enrollment Period?

A time outside Open Enrollment when you and your family can enroll in health coverage, or make changes to your coverage. To qualify for a Special Enrollment Period, you must experience a Qualifying Life Event like losing employer-sponsored coverage, getting married, or moving to or within Idaho. LEARN MORE >

Estimate Your Savings

Your Health Idaho is the only place Idahoans can apply for and receive a tax credit to help cover some or all of their monthly insurance premiums. Some Idahoans may also qualify for Cost-Sharing Reductions when they enroll in a Silver Tier plan, which lowers out-of-pocket costs for things like co-pays and prescriptions.

More than 90% of Idahoans enrolled through Your Health Idaho qualify for a tax credit. See how much you could save on health insurance by visiting the tax credit estimator.
