About Us

Washington Health Benefit Exchange operates the state’s official health insurance marketplace, Washington Healthplanfinder, where one in four Washingtonians access quality health and dental insurance. On Washington Healthplanfinder individuals and/or families can shop, compare, and enroll into qualified health and dental plans as well as Washington Apple Health (Medicaid).

Washington Healthplanfinder offers:
• Plans that cover all 10 essential health benefits.
• Exclusive access to federal tax credits and Cascade Care Savings (a new state subsidy) to help lower monthly costs.
• Enrollment assistors that can help individuals at no cost review plans, understand financial assistance, and enroll into coverage.

Small employers and entrepreneurs needing help understanding their health insurance options can email smallbusiness@wahbexchange.org. Our goal is to ensure small employers and entrepreneurs are aware of their options and get the coverage that best fits their needs.

Health insurance after a job loss:
While COBRA is an option after a job loss, Washington Healthplanfinder offers cost-effective health plans, including Cascade Care plans — which offer more coverage and ways to save than non-Cascade plans. Employees losing their employer health coverage can visit wahealthplanfinder.org to review their options.
