Birth & Adoption

Adding a new member to your household can impact your eligibility for insurance through Your Health Idaho, as well as your financial eligibility – meaning you could receive a new or updated tax credit amount.

You could qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) if you experienced one of the following Qualifying Life Events (QLE) in the last 60 days:

  • Birth of a baby
  • Adoption
  • Court-appointed ward

To report your change, you must provide documented proof. Accepted documents include:

  • Birth certificate
  • Court order for guardianship, adoption, or foster care
  • Evidence of right to control health care of dependent
  • Other documentation containing a signed, sworn statement with a signature from the healthcare provider including the same data points found on a birth certificate. Documentation must include the hospital or provider’s letter head.

For most QLEs, you have 60 days from the date of your event to enroll in coverage. This means you must report your change, provide documentation, and select a plan and enroll by the end of the 60 days.

If you have questions, or would like more information, contact Your Health Idaho at 855-944-3246 or submit a support request online.

How you report your QLE depends on if you already have coverage or receive a tax credit to help cover the cost of your insurance premium.
