Lawmaker pushing to change insurance website

CREATED Jan. 21, 2014

Some changes could be on their way to the way the Idaho Health Insurance Exchange operates online. Representative Lynn Luker is hoping to make two key changes to the Your Health Idaho website, enabling Idahoans to look at possible insurance options anonymously.

In addition, a warning would be added to the website to keep enrollees from making a mistake that could be costing them in taxes if they incorrectly state their income.

Luker says the changes add protections for consumers on the website, as well of the identity of individuals looking at a bid and not actually buying insurance.
