What should you do if you don't have health insurance?

If you do not have health insurance, you should see if your income qualifies you for free coverage (www.hca.wa.gov). You can enroll in Medicaid year-round through Washington's Health Benefit Exchange (www.wahealthplanfinder.org). If you need an individual health plan, you have until May 8 to sign up for a health plan by calling the exchange at 1-855-923-4633. After May 8, you must qualify for a special enrollment to get covered.

If you believe you need to be tested for coronavirus, you should contact a local medical provider first. Find a local community clinic (www.wacommunityhealth.org) near you.
