The best way to buy your first health insurance is through your local DC Health Connector.
But you don’t have to drive up to the hospital to get your first one, as we’ve discovered.
Instead, we’ve found the best way is to visit one of the hundreds of Health Connectors across the Capital Region, using our DC Health map, to get the first health plan that suits you.
