The Affordable Care Act requires everyone to have health insurance. The goal is to make coverage more accessible and affordable for those who do not currently have health insurance or have limited coverage.
Washington State's Health Benefit Exchange, called Washington Healthplanfinder, allows individuals and families who do not have employer-sponsored health insurance to enroll in a health plan and receive financial help. Health coverage offered through Washington Healthplanfinder includes Apple Health (Medicaid) and various qualified health insurance plans.
Enrollment into the Apple Health program is open throughout the year. Please visit www.wahealthplanfinder.org for enrollment schedules for Qualified Health Plans through the insurance exchange.
