Medicaid patient enrollment is at an all-time high. 

Nearly 2 million Washingtonians have Medicaid. The growing Apple Health population includes many low-wage workers, young adults getting an education and low-income families. For many people, Apple Health is a temporary benefit as they work their way into higher paying jobs, where they’ll obtain private insurance. And once they do, these patients are likely to remain with your practice.
