Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Enrolling in Health Insurance Coverage If You Work for a Small Business with Health Insurance Through DC Health Link

I work for a small business with health insurance through DC Health Link. I didn’t sign up for the health insurance when it was offered. Does DC Health Link have a Coronavirus (COVID-19) Special Enrollment Period?

Yes. You can enroll now even if you declined your employer's health insurance in the past.

How do I enroll?

Register or login to your account. Under 'Have life changes?', choose COVID-19.

Can my dependent(s) also enroll?

Yes. Your dependent(s) can enroll as long as your employer offers coverage to dependents.

When will my health insurance coverage start?

You have two (2) options for your coverage start date:

  • The first of the month you request the special enrollment period
  • The first of the next month

For example, if I'm signing up on April 3, I can choose coverage starting on April 1 or May 1.
