Boise, ID – Individual health insurance enrollment for 2023 will soon be open to shoppers on the state insurance exchange, and St. Luke’s Health Plan options are now available for early viewing and comparison shopping at yourhealthidaho.org. Prospective health insurance plan shoppers can begin to enroll on Oct. 15, 2022, when the online marketplace officially opens.
“St. Luke’s has been in Idaho for more than 120 years, and we are excited to bring a new approach to health care insurance in this market aimed at removing barriers that people experience with their current plans,” said Matt Wolff, St. Luke’s Health Plan president. “Our plan designs include access to one of the largest provider networks in the state, zero-dollar co-pays for in-network primary care, preventive care, maternity care and behavioral health care, and we’ve removed pre-authorization requirements for most services when you see a doctor in network.”
Wolff added, “Members enrolled with St. Luke’s Health Plan will also have access to broad pharmacy benefits including the St. Luke’s specialty pharmacy and prescription delivery services.”
St. Luke’s Health Plan will be available for individuals, families and businesses in 20 southwest Idaho counties including Ada, Adams, Blaine, Boise, Camas, Canyon, Cassia, Custer, Elmore, Gem, Gooding, Jerome, Lemhi, Lincoln, Minidoka, Owyhee, Payette, Twin Falls, Valley and Washington.
For those currently enrolled through the state insurance exchange, unless a new plan is selected, they will be automatically renewed in their current plan for the 2023 coverage year.
“Anyone needing new health insurance coverage or looking to potentially change their health insurance plan is eligible to enroll in St. Luke’s Health Plan and can do so through the Your Health Idaho marketplace through December 15, 2022,” said Wolff. “We encourage people to take this time to learn, compare and consider if their current health insurance plan is meeting their needs. Your Health Idaho offers some excellent tools and resources to make the process easier.”
For Idahoans who enroll between Oct. 15 and Dec. 15, 2022, St. Luke’s Health Plan benefits will begin on Jan. 1, 2023.
