WENATCHEE — Starting Tuesday, Columbia Valley Community Health will provide in-person assistance to residents of Chelan and Douglas counties looking to enroll in health insurance coverage through the Washington Health Benefit Exchange. The assistance will be free and open to everyone in the community, not just patients of Columbia Valley Community Health (CVCH). In-person assistance will be available at the Wenatchee clinic, located at 600 Orondo Ave.; and the Chelan clinic, 317 E. Johnson St.
There will be public computer stations at the Wenatchee and Chelan clinics that will allow access to the Washington Health Benefit Exchange, known as Washington Healthplanfinder. These stations will be available during clinic hours and will be staffed by CVCH employees who have been trained to guide people through the enrollment process.
Community members needing enrollment assistance can go directly into the stations and do not need to make an appointment. Current CVCH patients can schedule enrollment appointments by calling 662-6000.
