Your Health Idaho Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Ten years of serving Idahoans and providing access to quality, affordable health insurance

 Your Health Idaho, Idaho’s state-based health insurance marketplace, is celebrating 10 years in operation. Over the past decade, Your Health Idaho has helped hundreds of thousands of Idahoans purchase health insurance and saved families money by providing access to Advance Premium Tax Credits to pay for monthly health insurance premiums.

“From the start, we have worked hard to maintain maximum control of our health insurance marketplace at a minimal cost to our citizens. Looking back on the past 10 years, our team, and partners, have been very successful in delivering on our mission,” said Pat Kelly, Executive Director of Your Health Idaho. “Thank you to all the Idahoans who have trusted Your Health Idaho to find affordable, comprehensive health insurance. We do this work for you.”

Your Health Idaho was created when Idaho House Bill 248 was signed into law on March 28, 2013. Since then, Your Health Idaho has saved Idahoans $43 million in assessment fees, provided access to affordable health insurance to almost 375,000 Idahoans with over 826,000 enrollments, and delivered almost $3 billion in Advance Premium Tax Credits to help lower the cost of monthly premiums. Over 42% of Idahoans enrolled through the marketplace for their health insurance coverage needs have been with Your Health Idaho for five or more years and in 2023, 87% of enrolled Idahoans qualified for a tax credit.

Your Health Idaho’s partners and team members have been critical to the organization’s success. Their dedication and tenacity have been key to continually improving the customer experience for Idahoans and leading the way for other state-based exchanges. Your Health Idaho was the first to successfully transition off the federal system to its own technology platform, leading the way for other states across the country to create their own state-based marketplaces.

“Ten years ago, with strong support and dissent, Governor Otter and the Idaho Legislature created Idaho’s own health insurance exchange, now known as Your Health Idaho. They wanted a state-driven exchange built upon Idaho’s unique values with Idahoans in control. Many wondered if it would succeed and achieve its goals. The answer is a resounding ‘Yes!’ Your Health Idaho has been a win for all Idahoans,” said Stephen Weeg, Chairman of the Board, Your Health Idaho.

In 2013, Your Health Idaho had just four team members. Today, the organization has grown to almost 70 employees and helped create over 1,000 jobs in the community, invested almost $60 million in Idaho- based businesses, and supported thousands of Your Health Idaho-certified agents, brokers, and enrollment counselors who help Idahoans through the enrollment process.

Named one of the 2023 Top Companies in Treasure Valley, Your Health Idaho is recognized as one of the best places to work, a testament to the organization’s belief that the success of Your Health Idaho is intrinsically tied to the success of its team members.

Your Health Idaho was also recently named a CIO 100 Award winner for 2023 for its recent implementation of real-time eligibility and customer service telephony platform upgrade. The annual CIO 100 Awards celebrates organizations using technology in innovative ways to deliver value by optimizing business processes, enabling growth, and improving relationships with customers.

The success of Idaho’s state-based health insurance marketplace over the past 10 years would not have been possible without Your Health Idaho-certified agents, brokers, and enrollment counselors, technology and carrier partners, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, the Idaho Department of Insurance, and Your Health Idaho team members. Your Health Idaho is excited for the future and continuing to make health insurance accessible for more Idahoans.


Your Health Idaho is an online marketplace that allows Idaho families and small businesses to shop, compare, and choose the health insurance coverage that’s right for them. Your Health Idaho is the only place where Idahoans can find tax credits to help make health insurance more affordable. Your Health Idaho is governed by a 19-member board of Idahoans which includes insurance agents, physicians, business owners, legislators, and non-profit representatives.
