The Navigator Network of Eastern Washington
The Navigator Network of Eastern Washington is an in-person assistance network that provides on the ground support to Washington residents enrolling in health insurance. Navigators are available to answer questions about coverage year-round and help folks enroll in health insurance through Washington HealthPlanFinder during open enrollment.
You can access the Navigators through their storefront, by phone, or out and about at community events throughout our 7 county region. Navigators are always available to support people facing special circumstances such as a loss of coverage due to change in employment, income or life circumstances.
The Navigator Network launched in 2013 with the audacious goal of enrolling 10,000 participants in qualified healthcare plans. Within the first two years, the Network dramatically exceeded this number, enrolling more than 100,000 participants. Because of this work, more than 95% of our Eastern Washington region now has insurance coverage.
Our network’s tremendous success comes from the web of diverse partners connected across our region. This vast network of partners, which represents many sectors has reached population segments including un/underinsured people, older adults, people with disabilities, low-income individuals and families, people experiencing homelessness, foster youth, prison and re-entry populations, people with limited English proficiency, migrant workers, small businesses, rural populations, and the region’s diverse racial/ethnic populations.
