Insurance Enrollment

About Enrollment Services

Unity Care NW is dedicated to helping our community access insurance coverage and learn about other options for accessing affordable care. Our Enrollment Specialists have been trained and certified as In-Person Assistors by Washington State’s Health Benefit Exchange and are available to help you through every step of the enrollment process. Our enrollment services are free, and the information you receive from our specialists about health plans is unbiased. For Unity Care NW patients who do not qualify for insurance coverage or who have high deductibles or co-pays, our Enrollment Specialists can assist you in applying for our Sliding Fee Discount Program and provide information about other available programs.

Open Enrollment Period Now Until January 15th, 2021

You can enroll in or change your health insurance for 2022 right now. The 2022 Open Enrollment Period runs from Monday, November 1, 2021 through Saturday, January 15, 2022. If you don’t act by January 15, 2022, you can’t get 2022 coverage unless you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period. Enroll by December 15, 2021 for coverage that starts January 1, 2022.

Outside of the Open or Special Enrollment periods, you may be eligible to apply for coverage if your family is very low-income or your family has recently experienced a life event, such as becoming unemployed, having a baby, or getting married. Enrollment in Apple Health (Medicaid) remains open throughout the year, based on eligibility.

Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period

From January 1 – March 31 each year, if you’re enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan, you can switch to a different Medicare Advantage Plan or switch to Original Medicare (and join a separate Medicare drug plan) once during this time.
