Apple Health for Workers with Disabilities (HWD)

This program provides coverage to individuals with disabilities with earned income who purchase health care coverage based on a sliding income scale. The minimum age requirement is 16 years. HWD has no asset test and no upper income limit.

To be eligible, an individual must meet federal disability requirements, be employed (including self-employment) full or part time, and pay the monthly premium. To receive HWD benefits, enrollees pay a monthly premium determined as a percentage of their income. The premium will never exceed 7.5 percent of total income and may be less. American Indians and Alaska Natives are exempt from paying premiums for HWD. Find more information about HWD for individuals receiving services from Developmental Disabilities Administration or Home and Community Services. Find additional information on HWD in this fact sheet.
