Health insurance can be complicated. That’s why we created a plain language glossary to make it easier for you to understand words you’ll see when shopping for or using your health plan.
The DCHealthSmarts℠ Glossary explains terms commonly found on dchealthlink.com, insurance plan information, DC Health Link applications and federal tax forms. The DCHealthSmarts℠ Glossary also includes medical and health insurance terms from Just Plain Clear® Glossary, developed by UnitedHealth Group. The definitions are not legal definitions. The definitions in your plan documents, Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or other government regulations will govern your coverage.
