What is Community Health Plan of Washington (CHPW)?

CHPW's logo

CHPW is a not-for-profit health insurance plan. We work with the state to offer health care plans to Apple Health and Medicare eligible recipients. As a not-for-profit, we reinvest the money we make back into the services we provide our members and the communities we are part of. That’s why we’re able to offer excellent care, as well as many benefits not covered by Apple Health alone.
