by American Insurance News Release on Jan 8, 2019
More than 103,154 Idahoans enrolled in health insurance coverage for the 2019 plan year during open enrollment held from Nov. 1 through Dec. 15, 2018, through Your Health Idaho, the state’s health insurance marketplace. This is the second highest number of enrollments Your Health Idaho has experienced since inception.
Our enrollment numbers for 2019 grew by more than one percent with 83 percent of our customers renewing their plans, continuing to demonstrate the value Idahoans have found in having health insurance through the exchange.
“Our agents, Tim Gleason and Dave Root, have both done a great job researching plans for our new and returning clients through the Idaho Exchange,” said Shawn D.. Sullivan, American Insurance President. “By staying on top of all of the ongoing changes, we are able to offer several options for each area family with and without the tax credits.”
Pat Kelly, executive director for Your Health Idaho said, “We are excited it’s been another great year for Idaho’s health insurance enrollments. We attribute this success to Idahoans understanding the vital role the exchange plays and our ability to offer individuals and families a robust number of insurance plans with a variety of options in coverage. As well as nine out of ten customers being eligible for additional savings to help them lower monthly premiums through the use of a Tax Credit only offered by Your Health Idaho.”
This year, Your Health Idaho offered 293 health and dental plans on the exchange through its important partnerships with the Department of Insurance and seven carriers. Also, we worked closely with our network of more than 900 agents, brokers and enrollment counselors across the state who worked hard to help Idaho families and individuals for free to ensure they could navigate the complexities of health insurance and select a plan that was right for them and their budget.
“We appreciate the many efforts of our partners as we celebrate the success we’ve had in working together to ensure Idahoans know about Your Health Idaho and have access to the health insurance coverage they need in the coming year. We would especially like to thank the Department of Insurance, Department of Health and Welfare, our carrier partners, and GetInsured. It is because of these partnerships that we are able to remain one of the most successful marketplaces in the country,” said Kelly.
