Cascade Care 2021 Implementation

Senate Bill 5526 (Cascade Care) passed in May 2019 establishing the nation’s first-ever public option for health insurance coverage in Washington State. This legislation partners the Washington Health Benefit Exchange with the Health Care Authority, Office of the Insurance Commissioner and other key stakeholders to design and implement standard plans and offer public option plans through the Exchange in 2021. These plans are designed to provide coverage options that are more understandable, more affordable and of more value to all Washingtonians.

The resulting work of this partnership will be that Washingtonians have access to new coverage options through Washington Healthplanfinder starting fall 2020 for coverage effective Jan. 1, 2021.

For more information on the Exchange’s Cascade Care implementation work please contact Christine Gibert, Associate Policy Director; Christine.gibert@wahbexchange.org
