Eye On Boise

Thousands apply for Washington, Idaho insurance exchange plans

Nearly 120,000 Washington residents have completed applications for health insurance through the state’s insurance exchange, a federal report revealed today, and more than 10,500 Idahoans have completed applications through their state’s exchange. Those numbers are far higher than the numbers who have selected the plan they want to enroll in through the exchanges – 7,091 in Washington and 338 in Idaho. But they do show that thousands in both states have made their way through the application process, despite initial glitches, particularly with the federal computer system that Idaho’s relied on. You can read my full story here at spokesman.com.

Nationally, just 106,185 individuals have selected and enrolled in plans through exchanges, but more than 1.5 million have completed applications, 1.08 million of those were deemed eligible for exchange plans, and 326,130 qualified for new federal subsidies.
