Adults 65 Plus
If you are 65 years or older you may qualify for low or no-cost health insurance through Medicare or the Washington Health Program.
Medicare is a health insurance program for people 65 years of age and older, some disabled people under 65 years of age, and people with End-Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure treated with dialysis or a transplant). Medicare is divided into two parts: Part A (hospital) insurance and Part B (medical) insurance.
If you don't qualify for Medicare, you and your family, as Washington residents, may qualify for the Classic Medicaid Program or another program through DSHS.
