Eligibility

Cascade Select individual and family health plans are available through Washington Healthplanfinder, the state’s online health insurance marketplace. Sign up during the open enrollment period that starts November 1, 2021, for coverage beginning in 2022.

You may also be able to sign up outside of the open enrollment period if certain life events or situations qualify you for a Special Enrollment Period.

Financial help

Depending on how much you earn, you may qualify for financial help to reduce your premiums and out-of-pocket costs. To find out if you’re eligible, call us at 1-833-993-0181 (TTY: 711), 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, or enter your application to view your results on Washington Healthplanfinder (also known as the Exchange).

Tax credits
A federal “premium tax credit” reduces your monthly premium payments for insurance plans purchased through health insurance marketplaces such as Washington Healthplanfinder. The tax credit is available to individuals and families with incomes between the federal poverty line and 400 percent of the federal poverty line. You’ll see if you’re eligible for tax credits when you apply for a plan through Healthplanfinder.
Cost-Share Reductions
Cost-share reduction is a type of financial help that lowers the amount you have to pay out of pocket at the time you get health care, such as when you go to the doctor’s office or when you get lab tests. To qualify, your income must be below 250% of the federal poverty line, and you must choose a Silver* plan. When you fill out your application on Healthplanfinder, the cost of each health plan you see will automatically include the amount of financial help you may qualify for.

*American Indians and Alaska Natives can also qualify to get cost-sharing reductions when they enroll in a Bronze or Gold plan.

Medicaid
Apple Health (Medicaid) provides free or low-cost coverage for people with lower incomes who meet certain eligibility criteria. Apple Health coverage is offered by CHNW’s Cascade Select partner, Community Health Plan of Washington.
