More than 43,000 Idahoans have now selected health insurance plans on YourHealthIdaho.org, the state health insurance exchange, with 26 percent of them falling into the key 18- to 34-year-old demographic. The latest numbers, released this afternoon, place Idaho second in the nation in per-capita participation. An additional 30,224 Idahoans have started the application process but not yet selected a plan, according to Jody Olson, YourHealthIdaho spokeswoman.
“Idahoans who still want a plan have until March 31 to sign up,” Olson said. “We know the process takes time, so we encourage people to start now.” She added, “We will continue helping sign people up until the end of open enrollment.”
