Integrated Managed Care
The Washington State Health Care Authority has begun implementing changes to the Apple Health managed care program. This is based on State Legislature to shift to a whole-person approach to care delivery. The approach is being rolled out by county and will eventually apply to the entire state of Washington.
As of January 1, 2019 Coordinated Care members in Apple Health Core Connections statewide, and Apple Health (Medicaid) members in Asotin, Benton, Chelan, Columbia, Douglas, Franklin, Garfield, Grant, King, Kittitas, Okanogan, Pierce, Walla Walla, Whitman and Yakima counties have physical health, mental health, and drug and alcohol treatment covered under our plan. This new system is helping us better serve Apple Health members in our state.
For behavioral health crisis services, 24/7 crisis phone lines are available to support children and adults. Find the direct number specific to a member's county below, or call us at 1-877-644-4613.
