According to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), 42,000 District of Columbia residents are uninsured (8% of the area’s population) and 81% of those are eligible for tax credits to supplement their insurance costs in the Affordable Care Act-enabled marketplace.

The HHS also reported that the average cost for the bronze plan in D.C., the lowest-cost option, is $204 /mo. before any tax credits. This is well below the national average for a bronze plan which is $249 a month.

D.C. has opted to run their own health care marketplace and residents can enroll at the official website dchealthlink.com. As a basis for comparison, we encourage you to get quotes direct from other insurance companies to view a better range of plans and to get assistance with dental and vision plans.
