Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or "Obamacare", health insurance is available and more affordable for everyone, especially to those with the lowest incomes since it helps subsidize costs. Some of the ways you can obtain health insurance coverage is through the District of Columbia exchange, through an employer's plan, public programs like Medicaid and CHIP, directly from a private insurance provider, or through health insurance marketplaces like GoHealth. We partner with over 300+ private insurers to help District of Columbia residents compare plans and benefits, and get better health insurance at the lowest cost.

Choosing to call the District of Columbia home means you’ll have access to several health insurance options. When it comes to health coverage, there’s something for everybody, no matter your situation or budget.

Choosing to forego health insurance puts you at risk financially. One trip to the hospital could have you swimming in medical debt. There’s no good reason to take this risk with so many health insurance options in the District of Columbia.
