D.C. Canceling $90 Million in Medical Debt for up to 90,000 Residents

Mayor Bowser announced that the District will cancel up to $90 million in medical debt for many of the 90,000 District residents who have unpaid medical bills. The initiative is funded by $900,000 in anticipated year-end surplus funds from the fiscal year 2023 budget to address health inequities and racial disparities related to medical care.
