Idaho Insurance Enrollment Deadline Extended

www.yourhealthidaho.org

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The troubled rollout of insurance exchanges in Idaho and elsewhere has prompted the federal government to delay another deadline, this time giving prospective enrollees more time to get coverage before it goes into effect Jan. 1.

Your Health Idaho enrollees will have until Dec. 23, back from Dec. 15, to select a plan in order to be insured by the New Year. Amy Dowd, Idaho’s exchange director, says this new deadline gives people more time to make a choice about their coverage, required under President Obama’s 2010 health care overhaul.

Dowd also said in a statement the federal online application form Idaho is using has been improved and is functioning better. Even so, additional improvements are still in the works to remedy the problem-plagued launch of exchanges since Oct. 1.
