Paraeducator – Olympia, WA
In between jobs, Caleb had no health coverage and couldn’t stay on his parents’ plan because he had recently turned 26. He worried about the financial toll it would take if he needed medical care. Then he got a free health plan under Washington Apple Health (Medicaid) through Washington Healthplanfinder. And he’s glad he did – two months after he signed up for the plan, he came down with a serious virus that left him so sick he couldn’t move and was having problems breathing. Without his health plan, he might have delayed going to the doctor. But because he had insurance through Apple Health, he was able to visit the doctor and get the prescriptions he needed. He made a full recovery and his health plan protected him from having to pay all of his medical costs.
