Health forms

It is important that you bring your child's Universal Health Certificate and/or Oral Health Assessment Form to your child’s appointments. These forms must be completed by your child’s healthcare provider before they can enter school.

You can find both forms at


What you can get and how

A back-to-school swag bag* is a backpack and school supplies. You may qualify to get a swag bag and school supplies if:

  • You are verified as a MFC-DC Enrollee who is currently a student (ages 6 to 21) and;
  • You attend one of our back-to-school community events (see link under Events) and; 
  • You complete a well-child visit or dental exam on-site.

* Swag bags and supplies are available while supplies last.

Gift cards for screenings

To receive gift cards, you must be on time, on-site, and complete your yearly screenings.

  • Ages 3 to 11 will get a $25 gift card per well-child visit.
  • Ages 12 to 20 will get a $50 gift card per well-child visit through September 30, 2023.
  • Ages 3 to 20 will get a $25 gift card per dental exam.
  • Ages 0 to 2 will get a $10 gift card for a well-child visit, dental exam, and lead screening.

A MFC-DC Outreach specialist will reach out to Enrollees who have not completed a well-child visit or dental exam in the past year. You may qualify if your child has not completed either or both in the past year.
