What we're working on
Cascade Care is a three-agency effort involving the Health Care Authority (HCA), Washington Health Benefit Exchange (HBE), and Office of the Insurance Commissioner (OIC).
What is HCA's role in Cascade Care?
HCA is responsible for procuring the public option plans, called Cascade Care Select. Cascade Care Select plans are required to have a standard benefit design similar to Cascade Care plans. In addition, these plans must also meet additional quality and value standards and requirements. Learn more about our procurement efforts.
HCA conducts rulemaking to address hospital participation requirements to ensure Cascade Care Select plans are available in every county. Learn more about our rulemaking efforts.
