Customers who need help completing their health insurance application through Washington Healthplanfinder can get help from the Washington Health Benefit Exchange’s network of certified in-person assisters. In-person assisters give unbiased information, at no cost, to help customers decide which health insurance option is best for them. Under the Affordable Care Act, in-person assisters cannot recommend a specific plan.

Contact information for network organizations with certified in-person assisters is available here.

Washington Healthplanfinder in-person assisters are trained and certified by the Washington Health Benefit Exchange to:

  • Help individuals and families complete their Washington Healthplanfinder application and enroll in health insurance coverage.
  • Support customers with cultural, linguistic, disability or other special needs.
  • Explain coverage options and the availability of financial assistance to lower the cost of insurance premiums.

Certified Application Counselor

Certified application counselors are similar to in-person assisters and are located mostly in hospitals and clinics. They provide assistance to hospital patients who do not have insurance.

If your hospital is interested in having a certified application counselor contact the Exchange at
