As open enrollment begins Nov. 1, new carriers and enhanced tax credits will be available through Your Health Idaho, the state’s insurance exchange, writes Idaho Press reporter Ryan Suppe. 

Your Health Idaho is an online marketplace that allows people who do not have coverage through their employer and don’t qualify for Medicaid or Medicare to shop for insurance.

During this open enrollment period — the interval when changes can be made to benefits — Your Health Idaho will offer a record number of plans with the addition of two new carriers, Molina Healthcare of Idaho and EMI Health, the organization announced Monday. Also, enhanced subsidies will allow Idahoans who didn't previously qualify to get lower-cost insurance.
