DC Health Link in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning Affairs (LGBTQA) will host a virtual town hall conversation during PRIDE month to provide members of the LGBTQ community with information about the value of health insurance and on how to get the most from health insurance coverage. The complexity of health insurance choices can be overwhelming to many consumers. The need to understand health plan features is essential because health insurance coverage impacts access to health care services. This town hall conversation will also focus on what consumers need to know to choose plans that work best for them and their families. Participants will develop a greater understanding of how to use health insurance to manage their healthcare needs and will be given tools to use to solve problems. They will be guided through “Smart Actions” to take with health insurance. Through cases relevant to the LGBTQ community, participants will develop a greater understanding on how to use health coverage, manage health care expenses and the appropriate tools to use to make informed decisions. Dr. Jesse Ketterman from the University of Maryland Extension will share his "Smart Action” curriculum on health insurance. A DC Health Link representative will share important information about the ACA essential benefits offered in all DC Health Link health plans, the American Rescue Plan lower premiums in 2022, the advantages of standard plan options and how consumers can still enroll in coverage through the special enrollment periods.
