May 2015 |

This report describes the reasons that women remained on the TAKE CHARGE family planning waiver program instead of obtaining health insurance through another source, such as Washington’s Health Benefit Exchange. The main data source was a brief mailed survey of women enrolled in TAKE CHARGE between February and July 2014. The majority of women who remained on the TAKE CHARGE program were working but did not have employer-sponsored health insurance, for a variety of reasons. Nearly half the respondents indicated they were unable to pay for health insurance because of bills they had to pay. A small number of women in Washington continue to have clear needs for family planning coverage that are not being met, except through the TAKE CHARGE family planning program.
