Apple Health for COFA Islanders

The Health Care Authority (HCA) learned from The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, (Sec. 208) that Washington Apple Health (Medicaid) was restored to Washington residents from the Republic of Palau, the Republic of the Marshall Islands and the Federated States of Micronesia. HCA is diligently working with state and federal partners to transition Compact of Free Association (COFA) recipients into Apple Health programs. HCA will continue to share information as it becomes available.
