Data dashboards

The dashboards display utilization data for spoken and signed language access services provided through the HCA interpreter services program, including HCA, DSHS, and DCYF data.

These dashboards are intended to provide data to the Language Access Providers (LAP) Union, DSHS Language Testing and Certification (LTC), and other interested stakeholders.

ASL dashboards will be available soon.

About the interpreter services program

HCA offers spoken language and American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter services for Washington Apple Health (Medicaid) clients. This access is required by Title VI of the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

This program helps reduce the cost to health care providers when serving Apple Health clients by providing sign and spoken language interpreters at little to no cost for the provider. The Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) and the Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) also use this program for in-person spoken language interpreter requests. 

HCA must comply with the Language Access Providers (LAP) Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) when providing spoken language interpreters for Apple Health clients. HCA follows the DSHS Office of Deaf and Hard of Hearing (ODHH) guidance for sign language interpreters.
