Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

If I am an employer headquartered in the District of Columbia with one or more locations in other states as well, how should I offer coverage to my employees?

Small employers with locations in multiple states can choose how to offer coverage to their employees:

  • Offer coverage to all employees through DC Health Link; or

  • Offer coverage to workers located in the District through DC Health Link and offer coverage to other workers through the health benefit exchange serving the other work locations.

For example, a DC-based small employer with a secondary location in New York could either (a) offer coverage to all workers through DC Health Link, or (b) offer coverage to DC-based workers through DC Health Link, and offer coverage to NY-based workers through New York's Health Benefit Exchange.
