Medicaid Plan Selection Coming May 11th!

People applying for Washington Apple Health (Medicaid) coverage will soon be able to choose their managed care plan through the Washington Healthplanfinder (HPF). This will be similar to the process used today by other customers to select commercial, "qualified health plans" via the Healthplanfinder.

Beginning May 11, 2015, they can:

• Review managed care plan choices available in their area.
• Examine information about the past performance of those plans.
• Locate providers, hospitals, or clinics available in each plan.
• Choose a plan that will best meet their needs.

Existing Apple Health clients will be able to use Healthplanfinder to change their plan at any time. As before, they can also submit changes via an enrollment form, by calling the HCA call center or by going online to the ProviderOne client portal.

The Medicaid Plan Selection project is the culmination of a year of collaborative work between the Health Care Authority (HCA), Health Benefit Exchange (HBE), and Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS).

Please see the attached FAQs and the essential health services covered by all Apple Health managed care plans.
