The Renewal Period for 2020 Qualified Health Plan Coverage has Ended
You may still qualify for a special enrollment period or Washington Apple Health if you have certain life changes.
Here are Important Factors to Consider When Renewing
Cost: If you want to make sure you have the best priced plan in your area, you might want to shop for new coverage options on Washington Healthplanfinder. New plan options mean new, lower prices.
Coverage: If you want to take advantage of new benefit packages, or adjust the benefits you have now, you might want to check out new coverage options in your area. More health plans available means more options to choose from to find coverage that suits your needs. This includes checking whether a health care provider or clinic that you visit frequently is covered.
Convenience: If you are happy with your current plan, your plan (or a plan very similar) is offered next year, and your renewal letter says you are eligible to automatically renew your coverage, then you’re done! Just keep paying your monthly premiums and you will auto-renew for coverage that begins January 1st.
Has Anything Changed Since Last Year?
Report a change if anything in your household has changed. This includes such things as: number of household members applying for coverage, income change, pregnancy, etc.
