In the application you will be asked two questions pertaining to your Medicaid coverage.

  1. Were any of these (household members) found not eligible for Medicaid or Your Health Idaho in the past 90 days?
  • If you are applying before your Medicaid ends, answer None of the Above.
  • If you are applying after you have received notice from DHW that you are losing Medicaid because of no longer being eligible, answer with the name of the Household Member.

  1. Is (household member) currently enrolled in health coverage that will extend beyond 60 days from today?
  • If you have received a notice from DHW that your Medicaid will close in the next 60 days, answer No
  • If you have children who are applying with you, and whom you will be removing from CHIP if they are given a tax credit, answer No
  • If (household member) is enrolled in Medicaid or CHIP and does not know if or when coverage would end, answer Yes. (This household member will not be evaluated for cost-savings at this time. They can come back and re-apply if they learn that their Medicaid is going to end)
