CHNW plans are “public option” plans powered by Community Health Plan of Washington (CHPW). This not-for-profit managed care organization has been providing quality Apple Health (Medicaid) coverage to Washington residents and families since 1992 and Medicare coverage since 2007. CHNW is the parent organization to CHPW and is partnering with CHPW to utilize its affiliate network of providers and full suite of plan services for our CHNW Cascade Select Gold, Silver, and Bronze offerings
