Working together for healthy communities in WA


There are many ways to stay healthy. That’s why Wellpoint is dedicated to helping you get the care you need. With Wellpoint, you can continue to get your healthcare from tribal and urban Indian health programs. In fact, we’ll pay for them.

Care that works for you and your tribe


We're the first health plan in Washington state to honor traditional healing benefits for American Indians and Alaska Natives, including:




Sweat lodge

Naturopathic or traditional medicine


Plus, all Wellpoint benefits


Muckleshoot First Food, a breastfeeding campaign, is a peer lactation program. It incorporates cultural practices with the Women, Infants and Children's (WIC) program. We're partnering with the Muckleshoot Tribe, Public Health, and Multi-care to preserve these cultural practices.


The two-year campaign includes:


Continuous breastfeeding trainings


Support groups in the community


Cooking classes


Resource development for the native community

Making it easy to get care
