How to get your MedStar Family Choice District of Columbia
back-to-school swag book bag and gift card.

Back-to-school swag book bag

You can receive a swag book bag by completing your well-child visit or dental exam on-site. An Outreach specialist will contact you to schedule your well-child visit or dental exam if you have not completed one. The swag book bag is a backpack and school supplies for your child to be healthy and ready to learn!

If you attend one of our back to school community events and show you are an enrollee, you may also qualify to receive a backpack and/or school supplies.*

* Backpacks and supplies are available while supplies last.

See the events section below for a listing of community events.
