A one-stop shop for finding health insurance in Washington State. You can apply during open enrollment periods for private insurance coverage, or all year round for Medicaid or to report a change on an existing account.
Domestic violence survivors can apply for health insurance through their state’s health exchange at any time, even outside the open enrollment period.
