Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What type of health coverage is available through DC Health Link?

DC Health Link offers private medical, dental and vision coverage. District residents can also apply for Medicaid at any time.

You'll sign up for medical and dental coverage, or apply for Medicaid or other financial assistance directly through the DC Health Link website. If you're signing up for private health insurance, you'll have the opportunity to compare and choose from many plans using the Plan Match tool.

Vision coverage is available through Vision Service Plan (VSP) - the largest not-for-profit vision insurance plan in America. Consumers who choose to purchase a vision plan, do so directly through VSP's online enrollment system and not through DC Health Link.
