"We cover about 100,000 people and more than 5,100 employers in the District," says Mila Kofman about @DCHealthLink.

If you live in Virginia and don't have health insurance the first thing you should do is go to, says @NeighborhoodHth's @basimkhan.
"I think there's a lot of work that has to be done in terms of health care in our country ... whether it's a private or a public solution," says @NeighborhoodHth's @basimkhan.
"The way that we differentiate these plans is we'll see the difference between the deductibles," meaning what you pay out of pocket before the insurance company starts to pay, says navigator Jessica Sanchez with Prince George’s County Health Connect.
"In health care, trust can be built through long-term relationships with people ... in the sense that you've been there and will continue to be there," says @NeighborhoodHth's @basimkhan.
