We're receiving many questions from consumers on when they can access the new health benefits - from adding their adult kids to their coverage, to getting coverage from the new high risk pool. We wish there was a 'one-size fits all' answer. Believe me, it would make it easier for all of us!
For now, we're updating a general timeline on what takes effect and when. The answer for many will depend on what type of health plan they have and when they or their employer enrolled in the plan. Here's the timeline today.
We're also updating our frequently asked questions and answers almost daily as new information becomes available, so check back early and often. If you or someone you know has questions about the new law, give us a call at 1-800-562-6900 or e-mail AskMike@oic.wa.gov
