McCabe Working On Finding Insurance Options

Washington 14th District State Representative Gina McCabe says she is working to try to find options for Klickitat County residents who purchase their insurance on the individual market.  The Washington Office of the Insurance Commissioner announced recently that Klickitat County may be without health insurance coverage in 2018 as carriers have not filed plans in the county for the state’s 2018 individual health insurance market.  McCabe says her office has been in close contact with the Commisioner’s office and House Health Care Committee members to try to find a solution.  As of March 2017, more than 1,100 people in Klickitat County were enrolled in the individual market, with only two options available in the county.  Currently, those without a health insurer available in their county can seek coverage through the state’s high-risk pool, but because it is not considered a qualified exchange insurer, subsidies are not available to off-set the costs for medium-to-low-income families.
