Insurance Enrollment and Resources

Need health insurance? Our Outreach and Enrollment specialists can help you find a plan that’s right for you.

Insurance Policies and Sliding Fee Discount Program

Unity Care NW accepts most insurance plans, including Apple Health (Medicaid), Medicare, and private insurance. To ensure that you have access to affordable care regardless of ability to pay, we also offer a Sliding Fee Discount Program that discounts charges for those who are eligible based on household size and income.

To apply for the Sliding Fee Discount Program, contact our Outreach and Enrollment staff at (360) 788-2669 or enrollment@ucnw.org. You will be asked to complete a Sliding Fee Discount Program Application and provide current proof of household income.  If you have no income, you may fill out a Self Attestation of No Income form.

Open Enrollment Happening Now!

Open Enrollment is November 1 through December 15, 2019. This is your opportunity to renew insurance coverage, change plans, or sign up for coverage for the first time. It is the only time of the year to sign up for qualified health plans or renew existing health coverage.

Are you enrolled in Medicare? Open Enrollment for Medicare Advantage and Medicare prescription drug coverage is happening now, October 15 through December 7. For more information, click here.

If your family is very low-income or your family has recently experienced a life event, such as having a baby or getting married, you may also be eligible to apply for coverage outside of the Open Enrollment period. Enrollment in Apple Health (Medicaid) remains open throughout the year, based on eligibility. Contact our Outreach and Enrollment staff for more information.
