Adults and families

Adults and families may be able to get low or no-cost health insurance through the following medical programs:
- Washington Health Plan.
- Medicaid.
- Medicaid - Family Planning Only "Take Charge".
- One of Washington’s other medical programs.

Washington Health Plan

You and your family, as Washington residents, may qualify for the Washington Health Program. This unique program offers either $75,000 or $100,000 in health insurance coverage every year. Members maintain low deductibles and, at times, no-cost coverage for basic health services. This provides coverage for those unexpected trips to the hospital. In most cases, $75,000 or $100,000 is plenty of coverage throughout the year.  Visit the Washington Health Plan to find out if you qualify.


Medicaid provides no-cost health insurance for eligible children, pregnant women, low-income families, elderly, and blind or disabled individuals. Medicaid has two programs - Family Medical and Family Planning Only (“Take Charge”).

Family Planning Only ("Take Charge"):
