DCHealthSmarts℠ Glossary

Health insurance can be complicated. That’s why we created a plain language glossary to make it easier for you to understand words you’ll see when shopping for or using your health plan.

    Filter by:

The DCHealthSmarts℠ Glossary explains terms commonly found on, insurance plan information, DC Health Link applications and federal tax forms. The DCHealthSmarts℠ Glossary also includes healthcare terms from the UnitedHealth Group Just Plain Clear® Glossary. The definitions are not legal definitions. The definitions in your plan documents, Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or other government regulations will govern your coverage.
