Health insurance brokers – also known as producers – play a crucial role in the success of DC Health Link, the District of Columbia’s new online health insurance marketplace for individuals, families, and small businesses.
Brokers have expertise and long-standing relationships with employers and other purchasers of health insurance benefits, helping them identify their options and make a choice that is in their best interest.
DC Health Link has built the role of brokers into the new marketplace. Licensed brokers will receive training and direct access to a broker portal on DCHealthLink.com so that they can serve their clients. Individuals, families, and small businesses that do not currently use the services of a broker will have access to a list of licensed brokers registered to sell on DC Health Link whom they can contact for assistance.
DC Health Link creates important new opportunities for insurance brokers including:
- Access to secure online eligibility and enrollment system to find affordable health care benefit options for small group and individual clients
- Ability to sell plans from all participating carriers
- Opportunity to expand your book of business
