What to know about the end of pandemic-era Medicaid coverage

Center for Policy Integrity on health care costs, x-ray

Dear neighbors,

During the pandemic, the Health Care Authority extended coverage for all Apple Health  clients. Due to federal action, that extension is ending.

Here are the facts and your options as a patient:

  • If you use Apple Health for health care, you should log on to Washington Healthplanfinder at wahealthplanfinder.org to ensure your contact and income information is up to date.
  • If you are still eligible, you will be re-enrolled in Apple Health.
  • If you no longer qualify, you can select a new health plan on the Healthplanfinder within 60 days to prevent a gap in your coverage. Most people who lose Apple Health coverage can get a Cascade Care plan for less than $10 a month.
  • Find out if you qualify or switch to a Cascade Care Silver or Gold plan at wahealthplanfinder.org.
  • For enrollment assistance, there are experts in many areas across the state. Find one near you at wahealthplanfinder.org¬†or the WAPlanfinder app. You can also call customer support at 1-855-923-4633.

Please share this with any friends or family who may have Apple Health!
