King County Executive Dow Constantine opened the Federal Way Enrollment Center, one of two full service offices across the state to help people find the right health insurance plan. Despite federal efforts to kill health reform, King County remains one of the nation’s top Affordable Care Act success stories.
The Federal Way storefront will have Navigators and insurance brokers to help enroll people. The state Health Exchange’s call center will direct people there to get hands-on help. In addition, King County maintains a list of sites where people can meet with a Navigator around the county, and people can find a private insurance broker through the Healthplanfinder website.
“People need to know that Washington’s health insurance exchange is going strong, and we are doubling down on the successful outreach strategies that have helped us cut the rate of uninsured by 60 percent,” said Constantine. “The fact is, there are more than 60 health insurance plans to choose from in King County, and most people qualify for a tax credit to keep the prices affordable. No matter what happens in the other Washington, we are moving forward, and keeping people healthy and financially secure.”
