In November 2018, voters passed a proposition to expand Medicaid in Idaho. The goal of Medicaid expansion is to provide Medicaid coverage to individuals with incomes up to 138% of the Federal Poverty Level.

The Department of Health and Welfare will build the communication, training, processes, and automation to support open enrollment.
