Washington to Offer Nations First Public Option’ Plan on States Exchange

June 7, 2019

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) signed into law a bill in May to create standardized health plans on the Washington Health Benefit Exchange, the state’s insurance marketplace, starting on Jan. 1, 2021. Under the program Cascade Care, the Washington State Health Care Authority will contract under a Request for Quotation (RFQ) process with one or more carriers to offer the standardized silver and gold qualified health plans. The law also requires health plans to reimburse providers and facilities at up to 160% of the Medicare rate to keep premium and deductible costs down. Currently, 14 of Washington’s 39 counties have only one individual health plan option on the exchange, with Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of Washington holding the highest market share with more than 53,000 enrollees.
