What we're working on

Health Care Authority released a request for applications (RFA) for the procurement of public option plans under Cascade Care. Read our announcement and view additional RFA materials to learn more.

What is HCA's role in Cascade Care?

HCA is responsible for procuring the public option plans. These plans are required to have a standard benefit design and meet additional quality and value standards and requirements. Through mid-January 2020, we held a public comment period on the quality, value, and affordability standards for the public option plans. Procurement for these plans will occur in February.
