Better health at lower costs – Washington is at work to improve the health and quality of life of all of its residents through a huge undertaking that is anchored in nine Accountable Communities for Health (ACH). For more information about the Healthier Washington work visit the methodology section.

Click the map or scroll below to compare the cost and quality across ACHs. Most performance results are based on the Medicaid population; some measures include people across private and public health insurance programs. ACH and statewide results are compared to the 90th percentile performance among all Medicaid plans nationwide (Target).

Click on the right-hand tab above to see performance results organized by residents with coverage through private insurers, Medicaid Apple Health, and the Washington Health Benefits Exchange.
