This Trial Eligibility Calculator is just that: a trial, a quick and convenient way to see what DSHS programs and services you might be eligible for. It's not a guarantee. Programs and services have different rules. To find out more, contact the Community Services Office (CSO) closest to you or apply on-line.

If you need medical coverage and don't think you or family members are eligible for DSHS medical assistance, contact Basic Health. Basic Health is state-funded, low-cost health care coverage for Washington residents who are not eligible for Medicare and fall within certain income guidelines. Monthly premiums are based on age, income, family size, and health plan.

To find out about long-term care (nursing home, in-home or facility care) contact the Home and Community Services office closest to you.

If you are 55 and over, Benefits CheckUp can help you find services that may pay for some of the costs of prescription drugs, health care, utilities, and other essential items or services.
