For Idaho uninsured, exchange starts Tuesday

Idaho’s state health insurance exchange opens Tuesday, allowing about 200,000 uninsured Idahoans to begin enrolling in health insurance plans; the coverage starts Jan. 1. Amy  Dowd, a health care consultant hired in April to run Idaho’s exchange, told the AP’s John Miller, “We don't have a set target we're expecting for enrollment. Our goals for our open enrollment period are to educate, get the word out that this is available.” Click below for Miller’s full report on the exchange startup, including a by-the-numbers roundup of costs, salaries, carriers, where to call and more.

Meanwhile, S-R reporter John Webster has a report here on the health care reform law changes and what they mean for you, whether you’re on Medicare or Medicaid, insured through your employer, have individual coverage now or are uninsured.
