How to Get Health Insurance
The Affordable Care Act requires everyone in the United States to enroll in health insurance by March 31, 2014. If you need more information about the available options or various avenues to purchase a health plan – or even help with navigating the Idaho health insurance marketplace, call (855) 944-3246.
A representative will answer your questions, help you to understand your health insurance options, and explain what information you’ll need to secure coverage. This service is provided via phone, at your convenience, and at no cost to you.
Before you make that call and choose a plan, we encourage you to review the large number of insurance plans that we accept at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center.
If you prefer, the Healthcare Reform Subsidy Calculator below can help you to estimate how much you will spend on health insurance. Or you can get more information, review your options, and apply for health coverage via the Idaho marketplace or the national marketplace at HealthCare.gov - Idaho.
