Apple Health for Kids Home Page
Apple Health for Kids is a Washington State initiative aimed at streamlining applications for children's healthcare coverage. Many Washington children are still uncovered, even though they are eligible. Their parents just don't know the coverage is available. Don't make that mistake. Healthcare coverage doesn't just help when your children are sick. It also covers preventative care like immunizations, physical exams, and even dental check-ups. If your children need coverage, apply today!
Washington Apple Health for Kids brings together children's medical programs under one umbrella. Families only need to complete one application. If your family meets the income eligibility standards, your children will be eligible. Just fill in the quick checklist and compare your income and family size. This will tell you if your children are eligible and if you will need to pay a premium for their coverage. You may also apply now!
Renewing Your Child's Medical
Each year, families need to provide proof that they remain eligible for the program. The forms are quick and easy to complete. More information here.
The Health Care Authority is developing a proposal that would extend an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy benefit to all Apple Health for Kids clients with a diagnosis in the Autism Spectrum Disorder classification. HCA is consulting with advocates, parents and providers as well as its federal partners to develop a workable funding arrangement for the new benefit. HCA anticipates obtaining a federal decision by January 2013. For more information visit the ABA website or email ABA@hca.wa.gov.
