Consumer notices workgroup
Who we are
The Washington Apple Health Consumer Notices Workgroup is a collaboration between the Health Care Authority (HCA), consumers, and stakeholders—consisting of community partners and legal advocates.
What we do
Our mission is to work together to improve all Apple Health notices by:
- Formatting the notices to increase readability.
- Using plain talking language.
- Increasing consumer confidence.
The process for each notice review will include:
- Initial drafting and final review by the “Core In-Person Group” in monthly meetings.
- Review by the “Subgroup” via email.
- Review by HCA staff.
- HCA coordination with HBE or DSHS to finalize system changes.
