OLYMPIA — Washington residents who get health insurance through Washington Healthplanfinder may qualify for a subsidy to help them pay the premiums in 2023.
“Cascade Care Savings” may be available to Washington residents with incomes up to 250% of the federal poverty level but who do not qualify for coverage through other programs like Medicaid or Washington Apple Health. People must buy a Gold or Silver insurance plan to qualify for the subsidy, according to a press release from the Washington Health Benefit Exchange.
People can switch or change their plans during the open enrollment period from Nov. 1 through Jan. 15. Washington residents can determine their eligibility for the program on the Washington Healthplanfinder website, www.WAHBExchange.org.
