Community Health Plan of Washington

For 25 years and counting, we've provided access to quality Medicaid coverage to Washington residents in their own communities. We expanded to cover Medicare patients in 2009 and entered the health care marketplace in 2013. All of our coverage is geared toward a model of care that treats the whole person and fosters trust, compassion, respect, and equality. We were founded in 1992 by Washington's community health centers. The CHC's wanted to form an insurance plan that would help coordinate care and advocate for people who were not being served by traditional insurance companies. We became the first not-for-profit managed care plan in the state, and today we are still the only not-for-profit to provide managed care to Apple Health members. Our mission is to deliver accessible managed care services that meet the needs and improve the health of our communities, and make managed care participation beneficial for community-responsive providers. We work for patients, and we work to help providers better serve those patients. Visit our career website at www.chpw.org/about-us/careers to learn more about our current opportunities.
