Idahoans will have more options when selecting a healthcare plan this open enrollment period.
Health insurance company Moda Health announced a new partnership with Saint Alphonsus Health System, the Patient Quality Alliance network, which serves patients in Southeast Idaho, and Minidoka Memorial Hospital. Through the partnership, Moda will now offer Idahoans individual, family, group, and Medicare supplement plans.
“We’re delighted to offer Idaho access to our high-quality health plans, all backed by our expert assistance, full suite of online services and strong provider partnerships,” Jason Gootee, VP of Sales & Strategic Market Development at Moda Health said. “Our company is committed to helping people find the right care at the right time in the right place. We know choosing the health plan that will care for you and your family is a very personal choice and we are happy we now give Idaho residents another choice for this important decision.”
Moda Health was founded in Portland in 1955 and has more than 400,000 members. Along with the addition of Idaho, Moda also serves customers across Oregon, Alaska, and Texas.
“We’re excited about this new partnership,” Lannie Checketts, Chief Financial Officer at Saint Alphonsus Health System said. “Moda Health has an impressive track record of working with providers to build healthier communities. And now, working together, Moda and Saint Alphonsus Health Alliance, with its robust network of over 3,000 providers which include well-known and established practices in the Treasure Valley, we will be doing exactly that.”
Moda’s individual and family plan open enrollment begins October 15 and runs through December 15. Individual and employer group plans will be available in Ada, Adams, Bannock, Bingham, Boise, Canyon, Caribou, Elmore, Gem, Minidoka, Oneida, Owyhee, Payette, Power, and Washington counties.
Over the summer, St. Luke’s Health System also announced a new form of health insurance. The St. Luke’s Health Plan is a not-for-profit subsidiary that brings coverage to people across west central and south central Idaho counties.
