District of Columbia health insurance

Health in the nation's capital improving

dc guide to health insurance

How healthy is it living in the nation’s Capital? The District of Columbia is not rated by America’s Health Rankings®, the annual United Health Foundation report that identifies the healthiest states because its highly urban nature makes it unique from the states. However, the foundation does include 2013 data about the District of Columbia.

Improved measurements

The nation’s capital is doing better on a whole range of factors: a decrease in the prevalence of obesity, a decrease in the number of uninsured, decrease in infant mortality, decrease in the rate of cardiovascular deaths over the past decade.

For more details see the United Health Foundation’s latest findings on District of Columbia.

Trust for America’s Health is another source for key District of Columbia health quality findings.

In addition, 2010’s federal health reform, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), included the creation of a prevention fund to provide more than $16 billion over the next 10 years to invest in effective, proven prevention efforts, like childhood obesity prevention and tobacco cessation, and the site has a report on how it impacts District of Columbia here.
