Community Health Network of Washington, comprised of 21 Community Health Centers, and the Immigrant and refugee Health Alliance partnered with Atrómitos, along with MCG Consulting, to conduct a landscape scan of the Washington State immigrant communities to inform Washington Health Benefit Exchange’s (WAHBE) future marketing, system design, and outreach efforts for the expanded health insurance coverage option for individuals without federally recognized immigration status.
Individuals without federal immigration status will have access to coverage under the state’s 1332 waiver and the state premium assistance program, Cascade Care Savings. beginning January 1, 2024.
