Medicaid Expansion

Montana’s innovative plan to extend health coverage to thousands of the state’s low income residents has been approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Coverage is offered through a private insurance company (Third Party Administrator), following the model of the successful Healthy Montana Kids health care program. Montana is the only state in the nation to take this unique approach.

The federal government covers the entire cost of this expansion until 2017, and will continue to cover no less than 90 percent of the cost after full implementation.

This uniquely Montana plan also includes limited premiums and copays to encourage personal responsibility. In order to incentivize healthy behaviors, there are no co-pays for preventive services, such as health screenings, help to quit smoking, and getting a flu shot.

For more information, go to the DPHHS website at

There are multiple ways to apply for coverage:

  • Online:
  • Phone: Over the phone at the Federal Marketplace at 1–800–318–2596, available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week
  • In Person: Montanans can go to any local community health centers or Office of Public Assistance.

DPHHS is partnering with private sector and community health care providers to get information out to help eligible Montanans about how to apply for the new health plan.
