For 30 years, the Center’s VitalHealth (health program) has provided benefits to small and large nonprofit organizations in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia.  When you select VitalHealth, you will join nearly 6,000 satisfied nonprofit employees and family members throughout the region, all while gaining access to affordable and comprehensive medical coverage.

Participating organizations have enjoyed unparalleled access to coverage options through an array of medical, vision and dental plans.  Additionally, the Center offers access to a series of life insurance options.

VitalHealth Plan Receives Exemption from DC Insurance Commission

Thanks to an exemption granted by the DC Insurance Commissioner, DC nonprofits have continued and expanded access to medical benefits through VitalHealth. This exemption means that any participating employer (nonprofit organization), regardless of the number of employees employed by the participating employer, is eligible to remain in or join the VitalHealth program to obtain medical benefits for employees. VitalHealth program participants are exempt from purchasing medical coverage through the DC Health Link. Those employers who were previously considered "small employers" are also now eligible to enroll in any medical option we offer rather than being limited to "grandfathered" medical offerings.
