How to contact Washington's Health Benefits Exchange


Earlier this month, the Washington Healthplanfinder (our state's health insurance exchange) opened its toll-free hotline to start answering questions about health coverage options, how to access financial help and what you need to know about the Exchange's enrollment process. The phone number is 1-855-923-4633 or TTY/TDD 1-855-627-9604. They're available from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The Healthplanfinder can also help you find other people -- a broker in your local community, say, or a nearby in-person assister -- to help you through the process. Click on the link or image above to find out more.
