Idaho is considering a unique health care plan that would increase the quality and efficiency of the care most Idahoans receive as well as expand health care coverage to 103,000 Idahoans working and living at the poverty line, including 5000 veterans and their spouses. If implemented, the plan can save Idaho $173 million which could be used to address important needs in education and provide tax savings.
Under this unique Idaho plan, federal dollars would be used to help individuals purchase affordable health care coverage in the private insurance market, while others would gain coverage through a new Medicaid plan focused on personal responsibility and accountability.
