Eligible documentation includes:

  • District of Columbia or federal tax filing returns for the most recent tax year
  • For newly employed applicants, a verifiable copy of an offer of employment that states the amount of salary to be paid

If an applicant is confirmed eligible for a reduced rate, their registered caregiver, regardless of their personal income also qualifies for the reduced rate. Caregivers are optional except for minor patients.
