Why Choose CHPW?

You. At the center of your family, your community, and your health care.

Quality health care means:



You’re the center

You have options

We’re honored to be the health care plan that works with you, and we don’t take your choice for granted.


You deserve excellent doctors

CHPW members say our network of committed health care providers is one of our greatest strengths.

We’re here to make sure you’re satisfied with your care and are being treated fairly.

“Community” isn’t just a name, it’s how we operate.

We got our start in Washington’s communities. We’ve grown a lot over the years, but our local focus has stayed the same.  

  • We’re near you. CHPW’s network of 20 Community Health Centers operates more than 180 clinics across the state, working with more than 2,700 primary care providers and 14,700 specialists. Our network includes over 100 hospitals. 
  • We’re Washington residents. We ride the same buses you do, visit the same libraries, and attend the same PTA meetings.  
  • We show up. Our team members attend local events all across Washington, from holiday parades to community get-togethers.

You get coverage for your whole health.

Your unique circumstances—your hometown, your family, your goals, your likes and dislikes—all play a part in shaping your health. You’re a whole person, which is why we practice whole-person care.

Whole-person care means:

  • We’re a team. We work hand-in-hand with you and your entire health care team, so it’s easier for you to get the care you need. We bring everyone together to consult with you about your health in pursuit of your best care options.
  • We treat every part of you. Our plan takes your physical health, mental health, behavioral health (including habits, nutrition, and exercise), and prescription needs into account.
  • Your health care is about more than doctor’s visits. Sometimes, you need your community to step in and help. We connect you with local resources for housing, food, job training, substance use recovery, and more.
