I live in King County, WA, and am trying to choose between the following Washington Apple Health (Medicaid) plans, but can't get any specifics on coverage, copays, etc from internet. Help me choose between Coordinated Care Corp (CCC), United Health Care Community (UHC
), Community Health Plant of WA (CHPW
), Molina Healthcare (MHC
), Amerigroup Washington (AMG

I am officially poor, thus I get shunted directly into the Medicaid section on Washington State's health exchange. I'm trying to get info on which plan to choose, but there is next to nothing about the specifics of these plans (really "Chemotherapy," no details, is about as deep as most get, though this
is slightly more helpful). It's incredibly frustrating, as all the internet resources run in a vague, self-referential circle. Moreover, some are still in flux: "If you are a new Community Health Plan of Washington member assigned to Washington Apple Health, please use the online directory after 1/15/14 to find a provider." Even if that were there, it just seems like there's no way to do a side-by-side comparison with these plans (which is what the exchange website proudly promises you).
I don't expect anyone to have specifics, but if you're in any way familiar with these things, could you give me some advice about these companies and their plans?
