Congratulations! Thanks in part to the many years of work of Healthy WA Coalition members, health care reform begins to go into effect today in our state.
Starting today, October 1st, uninsured families and individuals can now go to the Washington Healthplanfinder to enroll in all types of health coverage. This is a great day for so many Washingtonians who have gone without health insurance for far too long because they couldn’t afford it or had previously been screened out.
No matter what political games continue at the national level, health care reform is here to stay in Washington State. Please continue to help spread the word in your community: Coverage is Here! Open Enrollment for the exchange lasts for the next six months, and Open Enrollment for WA Apple Health (Medicaid) is year round.
While there is a long implementation road ahead of us, I hope you take time today to help spread the word about the ability for folks to now enroll in health coverage options. Go to wahealthplanfinder.org and click “apply for coverage”.
