Claims must be filed online. Payment will begin about two-and-a-half weeks from the time of application, if the claimant is eligible. Click here to see the current weekly benefit amount and the maximum length of benefits. Self-employed workers and independent contractors are likely not eligible due to not having covered employment (meaning they do not have employers that have paid into the unemployment insurance system). Customer service can be reached by phone at (208) 332-8942 or (208) 332-3570. The website also offers chat and email assistance options.

State Clinical Trials Law

The ACA requires that most, non-grandfathered, group health plans provide coverage for the routine costs when participating in clinical trials. Some states have more consumer protections. Click here for more information about clinical trials.

This state does not mandate insurers or HMOs doing business in state to cover routine patient costs associated with clinical trials. (Current as of 1/2011)
