Keeping Your Coverage Up to Date

Once you have coverage through Washington Healthplanfinder for 2018, it’s critical that you remember to keep your information up-to-date.

It’s also important that you pay your first premium, because that’s when your health coverage becomes active.

Understand Your Coverage

To review your current plan, sign into your account on the Washington Healthplanfinder . You can also contact your insurance company directly if you have questions about your plan benefits. You can also learn how to follow your insurer’s instructions on how and when to make your payment.

Report Any Changes

To avoid any surprises at tax time next year, you need to report income and household changes to Washington Healthplanfinder within 60 days of the change. Learn more about reporting a change.

To submit additional information about your household to Washington Healthplanfinder, use verification forms to get and maintain coverage. Learn more about submitting additional information.

Remember to Renew Your Coverage in Late 2018

Customers need to renew their coverage every year. To stay covered for the next year, you’ll need to renew your coverage during the next Open Enrollment Period. Check the home page of the Washington Health Benefit Exchange around November.

However, if you qualify for Washington Apple Health (Medicaid), you can apply for coverage at any time during the year. Learn more about applying.
