Small Businesses Employers can sign up to offer health insurance to their employees at any time throughout the year. For employers needing assistance, we recommend working with a broker (at no additional cost to you or your employees). Brokers can help you through the application process, help your employees enroll, and then continue to support you as your advocate and insurance advisor throughout the year.
Employees Employees enrolling in coverage offered by their employer through DC Health Link can enroll during the open enrollment period established by their employer, whenever that occurs during the year. Employees can enroll outside of their employer's open enrollment period ONLY if you are a newly-hired employee, or if you experience a qualifying life event such as marriage, birth, adoption, or losing eligibility for other health insurance coverage.
