Idaho "Freedom Blue" Health Plans Coming Soon?

Vox.com has released some details about Idaho Blue Cross' plans for new, non-ACA health insurance plans.  As mentioned in my blog post of February 1, Blue Cross received legislative approval to offer skinnier and less expensive health insurance plans to individuals & families.

Apparently the five new plans will be dubbed "Freedom Blue" and will come in between 25%-50% cheaper than Obamacare plans.  From what I am reading, it appears that the plans will have some new provisions as well...


  • Up to 50% rate up for applicants with health conditions
  • Pre-existing conditions exclusions for those who fail to maintain prior coverage
  • Lifetime maximum benefits $1,000,000
There will likely be issues between Idaho and the federal government.
