Information on 2018 health coverage through Ambetter

On Dec. 15, the Office of the Insurance Commissioner removed their order, allowing the continued sale of 2018 Ambetter individual health insurance plans in Washington state.

Q & A

Does this announcement mean I can still sign up for an Ambetter plan for 2018 coverage?

It does. Any customer who lives in a county that offers Ambetter plans for 2018 coverage can now apply for those plans at www.wahealthplanfinder.org.

Will this decision by the OIC impact other plans sold on Washington Healthplanfinder?

No other plans are affected. Today’s decision only impacts Ambetter plans. All other coverage available through Washington Healthplanfinder remains unchanged.

What if I am currently enrolled in an Ambetter plan or have selected an Ambetter plan for 2018 coverage? How can I make a payment?

Current Ambetter customers can find information about paying for their coverage at www.wahbexchange.com/payments. Ambetter will send an invoice to all customers who have selected an Ambetter plan during open enrollment.

If I need to sign up for an Ambetter health plan, or any other health plan for 2018 coverage, when do I need to do it?

Dec. 15 at 11:59 p.m. is the deadline to sign up for a 2018 health plan through Washington Healthplanfinder that begins on Jan. 1, 2018. After that time, the final day to select a 2018 health plan is Jan. 15, 2018 for coverage starting on Feb. 1, 2018.

I still have questions about signing up for coverage. Who should I contact?

You can find answers to questions about today’s Ambetter announcement, as well as other issues related to open enrollment by:

  • Connecting with a trained broker in your neighborhood.
  • Meeting with an experienced navigator located nearby.
