Established in the state for nearly 60 years, Regence Blue Shield of Idaho is the state's leading health insurance company. You might be new to Idaho. You might be getting health insurance coverage for the first time. Maybe you're just thinking about switching plans during open season for a better coverage plan. Regence is one of the options well worth considering.

Your first step, of course, is to weigh your health insurance needs. Are you looking for an individual health plan or will you be buying under a group plan? How many people do you want to cover? Does anyone to be covered have any pre-existing health conditions that might affect your policy? Do you prefer an open choice in health care providers over lower monthly premiums, or the reverse? A licensed insurance agent or company representative is well-qualified to help you narrow that focus.
