How to Submit Documents
In some cases, Washington Healthplanfinder needs additional information about your household so you can enroll in coverage. This is called being “conditionally eligible” and it happens when the systems that check your application can’t confirm some of your information.
If you’re conditionally eligible and don’t submit documents before the deadline, you and others in your household could lose your health insurance or the amount of financial help you’re getting could change.
Use the sections below to find the most common types of accepted documents for each category. There are also forms to download when you can’t submit the recommended documents. See a full list of accepted documents.
