Idaho’s health insurance marketplace is opening a special enrollment period for uninsured residents to sign up for health insurance coverage next month.
Your Health Idaho announced Monday that the special enrollment period will start March 1 and last through the end of the month.
People who enroll by March 31 will have health insurance coverage starting April 1, and some will be eligible for lower-cost insurance.
President Joe Biden directed the federal health insurance exchange, HealthCare.gov, to reopen enrollment starting this week through mid-May in an effort to expand healthcare coverage during the coronavirus pandemic. States with individual health care marketplaces have done the same. (AP)
