How To Sign Up for Obamacare in Idaho
To sign up for a health plan under the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) you can go directly to the online health insurance marketplace for Idaho -- or you can get help in person or over the phone.
For 2020 health plans, Idaho open enrollment began on November 1, 2019 and has been extended until December 18, Wednesday at 3 a.m. E.T.
Where's the Idaho Health Care Exchange?
You can find the Idaho health insurance exchange at Your Health Idaho. This is where you will learn about the specific health insurance plans available to you under Obamacare. If you see a plan you like, you'll be guided through the enrollment process online.
Getting In-Person Help with Enrollment
In Idaho, if you need help understanding your options for coverage under Obamacare or signing up for a plan, you can get free assistance from a navigator -- called a "certified enrollment counselor" in Idaho -- or from a licensed health insurance agent or broker.
Enrollment counselors can explain your options, answer your questions, and help you apply for the plan you choose -- but they can't recommend a specific plan for you.
Private insurance agents or brokers can also help you understand your health care coverage options under Obamacare. Unlike government-trained navigators, they are allowed to suggest the best plan for you.
Find an enrollment counselor. To find a Idaho certified enrolllment counselor, broker, or agent, use the Find Help page at Your Health Idaho.
Talk to a licensed broker. To directly connect with a Idaho insurance broker who can help you evaluate insurance plans and choose a plan that's appropriate for your situation, call 800-943-6832. (We receive advertising income from the licensed brokers who offer their services through this telephone number.)
