    To make your first payment:

    Current customers, you'll receive an invoice in early December with instructions for how to pay. Submit your payment by December 31, 2017 for a January 1 start.

    New customers, you'll have two options when you enroll: pay now or later. If you choose to pay later, you'll receive an invoice that will give you the option to pay by check or pay online. You'll need the system ID from the invoice slip to make your payment.

    No, your plan does not cover out-of-area providers, except in emergency situations. PersonalCare and Exclusive Provider Organization (EPO) plans offer in-network coverage with contracted Washington providers.

    You also have access to the 24-Hour NurseLine and Teledoc virtual care, so you can get care even if you're away from home.

    LifeWise has partnered with eviCore Healthcare to provide medical necessity management for certain outpatient rehabilitation services, such as physical therapy, massage therapy, and occupation therapy. Determining medical necessity helps our customers get the most effective care for their condition and helps us manage your monthly premiums.

    If you need to make plan changes, check eligibility or change your personal information (address, email, phone number), please contact Washington Healthplanfinder. They will share that information with us.

    It's up to you, but health savings accounts come with certain tax advantages, and help you save for medical expenses. Learn more about getting started.

    A grandfathered plan is an individual health plan purchased on or before March 23, 2010. This type of plan is exempt from many changes required by the Affordable Care Act.

    If you're enrolled in a grandfathered plan, you don't need to do anything. Your plan will renew automatically on January 1, 2017. However, if your health needs have changed, you can check out our 2018 plans.
