Apple Health Changes effective January 1, 2020
Beginning January 1, 2020 individuals with Washington Apple Health coverage in Thurston and Mason Counties have managed care health plans that coordinates their care, including services for physical health, mental health and drug/alcohol treatment. This change will not reduce any benefits. Apple Health covered individuals will continue to have access to the same services they currently do, but the state will pay for them differently. Covered individuals do not need to take any action, they will remain in their current health plan and may continue receiving treatment at the agencies where they are currently being served.
