Applying for Apple Health coverage

When you’re ready to apply, you’ll need this information:

  • Your household monthly income.
  • The Social Security numbers and dates of birth for each member of your household.
  • Your immigration information, if that applies to you.

Enrollment next steps

If you’re accepted, you'll receive a Services Card in about two weeks. Coverage will begin on the first day of the month in which the application was submitted. You'll have the option to select a managed care plan online or will be auto-enrolled into a plan. Learn more about enrollment next steps.

If you’re not eligible for Apple Health, you may qualify for help with your health insurance or for other health services. The Washington Healthplanfinder website or WAPlanfinder app will help you with that.
