October 1st arrived and the Idaho-based health insurance Marketplace opened for business. Even though the system has been very slow and sometimes not operational, www.yourhealthidaho.org is now operating at a much better pace with successful results.
Although Idaho did choose to administer its own Marketplace for affordable health insurance coverage, you will be initially redirected to Healthcare.gov for the actual application process. Our team at Wood River Insurance is here to help you in the process of binding coverage in the Marketplace.
Even if you choose to apply from home on your own time, please remember that only licensed agents may help you with the actual choosing of the right health plan for you and your family. In addition, the aid of an agent when your plan renews or you have claims and coverage questions can be invaluable. Please contact our office to find out the agent or agency information you will need to provide during the application process.
If the Marketplace is not the right avenue for you, plans OFF of the Exchange / Marketplace are available and we are ready to review your options with you. You may consider a change for January or await the renewal month of your plan to consider what path to take. We are here to assist you whether you are an existing client or newly in need of coverage. Let us help make this process clear and comfortable.
