It’s Not Over in DC!

Open Enrollment Continues Through January 31
WHAT/WHO:

DC Health Link is reminding District residents they can continue to sign up for health insurance coverage through DC Health Link through January 31, 2022. While open enrollment period for HealthCare.gov ended on January 15, DC residents have 3 more days to compare, shop, and enrollment in quality, affordable health insurance coverage for this year.

At 5:00pm today, DC Health Link’s signature 24-hour enrollment marathon will kick off virtually. In partnership with the Mayor's Office on LGBTQ+ Affairs, Carlos Rosario International Public Charter School, and the Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, DC Health Link will kick-off this year's 24-hour Enrollment Marathon with "Drag Yourself to Get Covered: A Virtual One-Touch Enrollment Event."

Attendees can enjoy their favorite drag performers headlined by the incomparable Cake. FREE one-on-one confidential enrollment services will be provided virtually to attendees by certified Assisters who will help with online shopping and plan comparison.

Instead of its usual creative outreach events for its 24-hour enrollment marathon, DC Health Link is reaching residents virtually this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Daily countdown text reminders will be sent to residents. Residents can expect to see DC Health Link enrollment commercials on local TV and DC Health Link advertisements in local newspapers and social media. Radio stations will stage DC Health Link shout-outs throughout the weekend. Plus, DC residents can expect to see DC Health Link enrollment reminder stickers on RedRocks Pizzeria carry-out and delivery pizza boxes this weekend.

DC Health Link is encouraging all District residents to take advantage of lower premiums in 2022. Thanks to the American Rescue Plan, health insurance coverage is more affordable now than ever.
