CHAS Enrolls Over 2,800 in First 55 Days

Since the beginning of open enrollment, October 1st, CHAS In-Person Assisters (IPAs) have been busy!

In the first 55 days of open enrollment, our IPAs have enrolled 2,802 patients in Washington’s expanded Medicaid plan (Washington Apple Health) or a qualified health plan.  IPAs have been meeting with individuals throughout all CHAS clinics and at various community events, helping answer questions and complete the enrollment process. Despite issues with the federal online marketplace, Washington State’s Healthplanfinder has enrolled nearly 100,000 Washingtonians. In Washington, it’s working!

Recently, the Huffington Post referenced the success that is being experienced in Washington State: http://huff.to/17SiszT

Assistance is available via phone or in person. Visit any CHAS clinic during clinic hours or call 509.444.8200 for more information or to enroll in an appropriate health plan.
