Idaho breaks record: 106K QHPs, up 4.9% over 2016
Your Health Idaho just released their final OE4 enrollment tally, and it's not bad at all:
A record number of Idahoans signed up for health insurance coverage through the statebased health insurance exchange during the latest open enrollment period, which ended on January 31.
“Over the last three months, more than 105,000 people selected a health insurance plan through the exchange,” said Pat Kelly, executive director of Your Health Idaho. “We have never seen more interest in Your Health Idaho. We know changes are coming to the health insurance marketplace but we want our customers to know our entire team remains committed to serving them and providing them with access to affordable health insurance options.”
In total, 105,977 Idahoans signed up for coverage through Your Health Idaho during the 2017 open enrollment period.
For the past three years, Idaho has been the leader in per-capita enrollments for state-based exchanges. YHI is currently waiting on nationwide enrollment numbers to determine how it ranks for the 2017 open enrollment period.
Now that open enrollment has ended, Idahoans must have a life-changing event, such as getting married or moving, to be eligible for a special enrollment period through Your Health Idaho. For information, please visit YourHealthIdaho.org.
Last year Idaho enrolled 101,000 people, so this is a 4.9% increase.
