Yakima Neighborhood Health Services Services is committed to making health care accessible and affordable, so we have partnered with WashingtonHealthPlanFinder to help you find low or no cost health coverage.
If you’ve lost coverage due to the pandemic, you now have more time to get covered under a Special Enrollment Period that starts Aug. 17-Sept. 30.
Our trained Navigators help you review plans to decide which medical and dental plans are best for you, your family and your budget. Call for help: (509) 853-2377 or email: email@example.com
We can often sign you up by the end of the phone call.
COVID-19 Special Coverage Period
If you’ve lost your health coverage due to unemployment, reduction in hours or furlough, Washington Health Plan Finder is offering low or no cost plans right now.
If you’ve encountered other life-changing events, like having a baby or losing a loved one, you may also be eligible for plans right now. Talk to our Navigators today to see if you qualify for a plan.
State and Federal Health Plans
Our Navigators can help you determine if you qualify for state or federal health plans like Medicaid for low-income families or Medicare for those about to turn 65 or older.
Medicaid-Apple Health enrollment is open year-round; you don’t need a special enrollment period to apply. Talk with us or visit Washington Health Plan Finder.
Medicare is the federal health insurance program for people who are 65 or older, certain younger people with disabilities, and people with End-Stage Renal Disease. To find out more, talk to us or visit the Medicare website.
New Plans Open November 1
If you haven’t experienced a life-changing event or a COVID-19 related job loss, new plans open to the public Nov. 1 for coverage starting Jan. 1. Our Navigators can help you sign up. (509) 853-2377.
We Treat Everyone
At Yakima Neighborhood Health Services, we provide provide primary health care — medical, dental, behavioral health — regardless of your ability to pay.
We accept Medicaid, Medicare and most private health insurance plans and offer discounts to qualifying, uninsured individuals. Discounts are calculated based on income.
The discounts are known as the sliding fee scale, which is designed to minimize financial barriers to care for patients at or below 200 percent of the current Federal Poverty Guidelines (FPG). The guidelines are annual income levels below which a person or family is considered to be living in poverty. https://www.healthcare.gov/glossary/federal-poverty-level-fpl/
