Changes coming to Washington Apple Health: Information

Apple Health (Medicaid) is shifting to whole-person care. Apple Health managed care plans will start to cover behavioral health treatment services (mental health and substance use disorder treatment), along with physical health services. Most clients will remain with the same health plan; however, there are a few places where plans will no longer be an available choice within a county. Clients will stay enrolled in their current plan, unless that plan will not be an option in 2019 or 2020. In that case, HCA will auto-enroll clients to one of the offered plans.
