The Affordable Care Act has required individuals in Washington to have health insurance starting January 1, 2014. This is part of a nationwide effort to make health care more accessible for those who do not have access to care.
Washington residents who do not have access to health insurance can visit Washington Health Plan Finder to learn more about available options or find out whether they are eligible for expanded Medicaid.
Individuals who wish to enroll in a plan that uses MultiCare’s network of physicians and services have several options. BridgeSpan health insurance plan has chosen MultiCare as its exclusive Pierce County hospital and physician network. Molina and Community Health Plan of Washington (CHPW) also provide access to MultiCare as a part of their broader network options.
The next upcoming Qualified Health Plan Open Enrollment is November 15, 2014 to February 15, 2015.
