The Washington Healthplanfinder website, at wahealthplanfinder. org, is back in working order today after a week of ups and downs … but mostly downs.
The latest outage of the state health-insurance online exchange began Sunday during scheduled annual maintenance of the state Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) Eligibility System and continued Monday as updates on the eligibility system did not install properly and had to be reinstalled. The system is used to verify individuals’ eligibility for free or low-cost health-insurance coverage.
The site also experienced outages during much of the previous week from other causes.
