Getting Started & Important Dates to Remember

As part of national health care reform, the Washington Health Benefit Exchange created Washington Healthplanfinder – an easily accessible, online marketplace for individuals, families and small businesses in Washington State to compare and enroll in quality health insurance plans and access important cost savings. With the Washington Healthplanfinder you can:

  1. Shop anonymously 
  2. Find out if you are eligible for financial help. For hundreds of thousands of people, health insurance will be free or at a much lower cost with the new Medicaid expansion.
  3. Apples-to-apples comparisons of Qualified Health Plans. All health plans offered through Washington Healthplanfinder meet strict benefit and quality standards. 
  4. Expert customer support online, by phone or in-person through a local organization or insurance broker.
  5. Select a plan
  6. Get coverage by the deadline
