The new enrollment season with Washington Healthplanfinder (under the Affordable Care Act) starts Nov. 15. Enrollment experts from Public Health and our partner organizations will be helping people sign-up at:
- Southcenter Mall (Food Court) – Saturday, Nov. 15, 11am-3pm, and Sunday, Nov. 16, Noon-4pm. (Help available in English, Spanish, Cantonese, Somali, Amharic, and Nepali.)
