Insurance & Payment Options

Whether you have private or public insurance or if you are not currently insured, Whitman-Walker Health wants to work with you to find a way to get you into care.

We accept many commercial and public insurance plans to help keep you engaged in care. Below you will find a list that highlights our accepted insurance plans per carrier.

Please present your insurance card and identification at each visit. Any copayment, and any coinsurance or deductible balance, will be due at the time of your visit. We accept payment by check, credit card, debit card, and cash.

If you don’t qualify for insurance coverage, our Public Benefits and Insurance Navigation Team can assess you for our sliding fee schedule of discounts, which will help you get a discount on your care if you qualify.
