When it comes to health insurance, there are many options to choose from. But it’s important to find the right plan for you. Whether you are enrolling for health insurance for the first time, updating your existing plan, or looking for a Medicare Advantage plan, Select Health is here to help you find the plan to best fit your needs.

Select Health is a nonprofit company committed to providing affordable and innovative wellness solutions to individuals, families, and businesses. Select Health focuses on the aspects of healthcare that matter most to our customers, while working to improve the member experience.

Here are some of the reasons Select Health members in Idaho choose to stay year after year.

Affordability: Select Health understands that rising healthcare costs are a big concern. To help combat that, Select Health works to offer competitively priced plans in every market, whether you’re an individual, a family, or a local business.

Access: When you’re sick or injured, the last thing you want is to spend time searching for a doctor. Select Health members enjoy access to a vast network of healthcare providers in Idaho, including those affiliated with Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center (EIRMC), Mountain View Hospital and Idaho Falls Community Hospital.

“When Select Health employees need healthcare, we use the same providers and clinics that you do,” said Trent Nate, AVP of Sales of Select Health Idaho. “This helps us understand how important it is to have local doctors and clinics available to everyone. It’s part of our promise of Helping People Live the Healthiest Lives Possible.”

Superior Experience: Select Health is continually working to provide our members with a simple, straightforward and seamless healthcare experience.

“We have a team of member services representatives ready to help you,” said Nate. “They are not just here to help you find the right plan, but they’ll also connect you with providers in network and even schedule appointments for you. Our team speaks Idaho.”

Member satisfaction is extremely important to Select Health. For 2024, Select Health Medicare (HMO) plans received a 5 out of 5 stars rating from Medicare for the third consecutive year in a row! A 5-star rating is considered excellent. This rating is based on survey results including member satisfaction, member service, benefits and the plan’s quality and performance.

A Focus on Wellness: Select Health doesn’t just support you through medical emergencies, we are here to help you throughout the whole year. Select Health plans cover preventive care 100%. This includes important preventive screenings, wellness checkups, immunizations, and flu shots. Members can access wellness incentives such as reimbursements for gym memberships and rewards for physical activity and healthy behaviors.

“You could be getting rewarded for things that you are already doing, like taking 7,000 steps a day,” said Nate.

Stability: Select Health is celebrating 40 years of providing affordable and quality healthcare. Select Health is currently serving more than 1 million members in Idaho, Utah, and Nevada. When you choose Select Health, you are choosing a health plan that is here to stay.

We Are Your Neighbors: With offices in Idaho Falls and Meridian, Select Health is deeply rooted in Idaho communities. Not only do we provide quality healthcare coverage, we are involved in your community.

We are proud to collaborate with local organizations, including the Idaho Falls Arts Council, NAMI Upper Valley, Idaho Falls Senior Center, Idaho Falls Symphony, and the United Way of Idaho Falls and Bonneville County.
