Do you lack health insurance?
Starting tomorrow, October 1, the Washington Healthplanfinder will open for enrollment for coverage starting January 1. Washington Healthplanfinder is Washington’s health insurance exchange created under the Affordable Care Act (aka “Obamacare”). It will allow you to compare insurance plans from different carriers and see if you qualify for subsidies to help you afford coverage.
Health plans at Washington Healthplanfinder are brand new, and all the basics are covered: doctor visits, prescriptions, maternity care, emergency care, preventive care like cancer screenings and vaccinations and more. No one will be denied coverage because they are sick or because they have a pre-existing condition.
Visit www.wahealthplanfinder.org or call 1-855-WA-FINDER toll-free to learn more and enroll. If you need assistance, trained staff will be available Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays through the end of the year at the Seattle Central Library, 1000 4th Avenue. Check with Public Health – Seattle and King County for exact hours.
