As part of national health reform, the Washington Health Benefit Exchange is currently working to create Washington Healthplanfinder – an easily accessible, online marketplace for individuals, families and small businesses in Washington State to compare and enroll in qualified health insurance plans. This one-stop shop will enable residents to:
- Make apples-to-apples comparison between Qualified Health Plans (QHP).
- Help determine eligibility for tax credits or less expensive co-pays and deductibles.
- Receive personal assistance finding, selecting and enrolling in the right health plan to meet their needs.
The Exchange works in close coordination with our state agency partners, including the Health Care Authority (Medicaid), Office of the Insurance Commissioner and the Department of Social and Health Services.
Countdown to Coverage Webinar Series
Did you know there are less than six months left until individuals, families and small businesses in our state will be able to enroll in health plans through Washington Healthplanfinder? To help you understand the upcoming changes associated with the Affordable Care Act and the new options that will be available through our online health insurance marketplace, we are pleased to present a new webinar series titled “Countdown to Coverage.”
The series, which runs from April to July, will include eight webinars that will walk you through the impact of the federal health care law on Washington State, how Washington Healthplanfinder works and where individuals can go for additional assistance to enroll in an appropriate health plan. A detailed schedule as well as more information is available here.
