In Washington State, Medicaid is called Apple Health. Apple Health provides preventative care, like cancer screenings, treatment for diabetes and high blood pressure, and many other health care services. You can apply for free or low-cost Apple Health coverage year-round. For most people, Washington Apple Health is free, but some families may have to pay a monthly premium.
- Apply for free or low-cost Apple Health (Medicaid or the Children's Health Insurance Program, CHIP ) year-round.
- If you do not qualify for free or low-cost Apple Health, you can still qualify for a Special Enrollment to get health insurance (if you have life changes that qualify you).
- Qualifying life changes include things like if you lose job-based coverage, have income changes, have a baby, get married, gain a new household member (dependent), or have certain other life changes.
