Health Home Program
The Health Home Program provides care coordination of medical, behavioral health and long-term services and supports for eligible individuals of all ages, at no cost to your client. The program uses a network of local agencies that work together to help clients understand and manage their health concerns. This helps reduce dependence on emergency departments and prevents avoidable hospitalizations.
Forms and Resources
The most up-to-date versions of Health Home forms can be found on the Washington State Health Care Authority Health Home website.
