WASHINGTON HEALTH INSURANCE:
The Washington State Health Insurance Pool (WSHIP) is an independent, non-profit health plan created by the Washington State Legislature.
We offer individual health insurance coverage to state residents rejected for coverage due to medical reasons. This state-instituted health insurance program is designed to provide health insurance for a small percentage of the population who otherwise are medically uninsurable because of pre-existing health problems. Before you can apply for WSHIP, you must have a letter of denial from a private health insurance company.
Washington health insurance allow you to compare plans side by side, read customer reviews, apply for coverage online and get personal help from licensed agents.

Depending on the health insurance company, Washington individual and family health insurance rates for couples can be based on the age of the youngest person on the policy. Some couples with an age difference of several years may find they save money by applying for the same plan rather than individually. Couples that are only a few years apart might be able to reduce their total costs by applying for separate health insurance plans. If you decide to apply for a health insurance plan as a couple, make sure the plan you choose covers the benefits both of you need.
