The DC HealthCare Alliance is a public program that provides free healthcare to certain individuals and families.

  • If you are a D.C. resident without health insurance, then you may be eligible for free health coverage through DC HealthCare Alliance.  Your family income may not exceed 200% of federal poverty level. In 2008, for a family of 3, this works out to an annual income of up to $35,200 or a monthly income of up to $2,950.
  • Every 12 months you will be required to prove that you are still eligible for the Alliance program.  You can only receive health coverage within the program for 12 months at a time.  You will need to be recertified by the program within 90 days of the end of each 12 month period.
  • If eligible, DC HealthCare Alliance will cover most of your medical needs.  This includes coverage for doctor’s visits, hospital care, specialty and diagnostic care, dental, and prescription medication.
  • You must receive care from a DC HealthCare Alliance provider.  All services provided by DC HealthCare Alliance providers are free of charge.  If you chose to receive care and/or services from a non-Alliance provider, you are responsible for payment for all services.
