Access to Other Health CoverageHow to submit documents
to DC Health Link
People who have access to other health insurance (sometimes called minimum essential coverage) are not eligible for help paying for health insurance with advance premium tax credits or cost-sharing reductions. If you or someone in your household’s other coverage has ended, you’ll need to provide documentation to prove it. This can include:
- A certificate of coverage or letter from the person’s health insurance company showing the end date of coverage
- A government-issued document showing the date coverage ended or ineligibility for a program
- A statement from the person’s employer that indicates the coverage they offer doesn’t meet the minimum value standard
There are 3 ways for you to submit the documents we need to make a final decision on your eligibility:
