The Idaho Department of Health & Welfare offers healthcare coverage for adults that address a variety of health needs, including coverage for low-income adults, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with disabilities who meet certain income criteria. Three different plans are offered that provide a range of options for each user.
- Basic Plan – This plan provides health, prevention, and wellness benefits for adults who do not have special health needs. This plan includes annual physicals, immunizations, most prescriptions, doctor and hospital visits, and more.
- Enhanced Plan – This plan is for individuals with disabilities or special health needs. This plan has all the benefits of the Basic Plan, plus additional benefits. Most of the time, individuals will need to be referred by a doctor to become eligible for the enhanced plan.
- Medicare-Medicaid Coordinated Plan – Designed for people who are eligible and enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid, (also known as dual eligibles). This plan has all the benefits of the Enhanced Plan, plus allows people to enroll in a managed care plan to help coordinate Medicare and Medicaid benefits. There are many advantages to enrolling in managed care, one of the most valuable is access to a care coordinator who helps people with complex medical conditions to achieve better health.
