Access to Health Insurance (AHI) is a premium assistance program that makes health insurance more affordable by helping employees of qualified small businesses enroll in employer-sponsored insurance for themselves and their families. The program provides premium assistance up to $100 per month, per person to qualified employees, their spouses, and their minor children, with a maximum premium assistance of up to $500 per month, per family.
The Access to Health Insurance program is not a health insurance plan, it is a way to help pay for health insurance.
Idaho Medicaid is working to make several improvements to the Access to Health Insurance program to make enrollment easier. One of these changes will be following carrier guidelines on employer contributions to employee premiums.
