How do Capitol Hill Fellows secure health insurance for the year?

Teach For America does not provide housing, health insurance, or other employee benefits for Fellows. Housing in Washington, D.C. and other benefits are the responsibility of the Fellow.

Fellows are eligible to purchase health insurance through the D.C. Health Insurance Exchange that was created by the Affordable Care Act. Details about the health plans available can be accessed on the D.C. Heath Benefit Exchange Authority website.

Fellows may also purchase insurance in the private health insurance marketplace.
