For nearly 30 years, Community Health Plan of Washington (CHPW) has been providing quality health care to Washington families and supporting your choices for health care. You’re the expert on your health and well-being. Our mission is to support you in making the best health care decisions for you and your family. Committed to leading the way We’re Washington’s first not-for-profit to serve Apple Health members. In 1992, Washington’s low-cost clinics (known as Community Health Centers) realized too many people were being neglected by traditional insurance. They got together and started Community Health Plan of Washington. CHPW is the state’s first not-for-profit managed care plan founded by Community Health Centers. Today, we’re still the only not-for-profit to provide managed care to Apple Health members. Always working to improve our services, we expanded to cover Medicare patients in 2007. Committed to Washington’s families We treat you how we’d want to be treated. We strive to make CHPW a home for all our members. Home means different things to different people, but it starts with being understood, respected, and cared for. Juggling your family’s health care needs can feel like a full-time job. But we’re on your team, helping you access all the services, therapies and solutions you need for their whole health. No matter what language a member speaks, we offer translation services. We provide access to high-quality medical services for everyone, regardless of ability to pay. Together, with our family of Community Health Centers, we empower members with services that go beyond traditional health care (like food, housing, and transportation assistance). Committed to Washington’s communities We’re here for Washington’s residents, because we are Washington residents. You’ll see us around Washington at your community events, on the bus, or even at the PTA meeting. Our CHPW staff are your neighbors here in Washington.
