  • Online: Go to Washington Healthplanfinder - log in and select "Report a change in income or household" under Quick Links.
    • You'll be taken to the "Report changes within your household" screen. Answer "yes" to the question "I need to add or remove someone from my household."
    • Answer "no" to the question “Is this person applying for coverage or continuing existing coverage through Washington Healthplanfinder?” and submit the application.
