Along with ten sites returning from last year, one new in-person assistance location will be available in Everett. Last year, enrollment centers served over 5,000 customers from November 1 through December 15.

They are prepared to help customers whether they obtain coverage through Washington Healthplanfinder, the WAPlanfinder mobile app, over the phone, or in person.”

The Exchange has a robust network of customer support across Washington State to help customers enroll in coverage that meets their needs and budget, which includes over 1,800 registered brokers, and nearly 1,000 navigators, tribal assisters and certified application counselors. The Exchange also supports a Customer Support Center based in Spokane Valley that employs more than 300 representatives during open enrollment period –including bi-lingual and multi-lingual services and provides a free telephonic interpreter service.

All residents are now encouraged to schedule an appointment to meet with a navigator or broker in their area. Connecting with in-person help is easiest through the WAPlanfinder mobile app that uses a customer’s current location to provide contact information for and detailed directions to the nearest navigators and brokers. Additional over-the-phone assistance is available by calling the Washington Healthplanfinder Customer Support Center at 1-855-923-4633.
