Washington Healthplanfinder effectively provides for both public and private insurance options, facilitates enrollment, supports carrier participation, and improves risk across the market. During the open enrollment period, every 30 seconds 1 Washingtonian is securing their coverage using Washington Healthplanfinder.


Our marketplace is ideally positioned to leverage opportunities provided by change to bring more to those we serve.

"As a musician, I'm self-employed. Back when I didn't have health insurance, it was a concern. I tried to stay healthy but there was always the worry that some kind of accident may happen. Now I'm covered and I can focus more on my music."
