Affordable Care Act - Medicaid Expansion
The Affordable Care Act increases Medicaid eligibility limits, bringing health care coverage to thousands of adults in Washington State. Coverage for adults earning up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level will begin January 1, 2014 (Click here for a quick chart on eligibility guidelines.). Washingtonians will be able to apply through a new online marketplace, called Washington Healthplanfinder, at www.wahealthplanfinder.org.
The Washington Health Benefit Exchange unveiled details of their Customer Support Program for Washington Healthplanfinder— the new way for Washingtonians to find, compare and enroll in health insurance starting Oct., 1, 2013. The support effort will focus on providing answers to questions about new types of health coverage options and financial help that will be offered to qualifying consumers.
Key to the program is the toll-free Customer Support Center in Spokane, which opens to Washington state callers today. Assistance is available in up to 175 languages and trained representatives are available weekdays 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. by dialing toll-free 1-855-WAFINDER (1-855-923-4633). Consumers can also email firstname.lastname@example.org.
