Apply and Enroll

What You Need to Apply

To 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.

In March 2021, The American Rescue Plan Act was passed making health insurance more affordable than ever. Now, more than 85% of Idahoans enrolled with Your Health Idaho qualify for financial assistance and lower-cost coverage.

If you didn’t qualify before, it’s time to check again. Before you start your application, visit the tax credit estimator to see how much you could save on health insurance coverage.
