DC Health Link Enrollment Process
The enrollment process for our UHC health plan is electronic and is done through DC Health Link – the District of Columbia’s Health Benefit Exchange.
How to Enroll
- The HR Department will add you as a new employee to the system.
- You will receive an automated email from DC Health Link advising you to Register for an Account.
- You will then need to enroll or waive coverage for yourself and any eligible dependents.
How to Make Changes to Information or Coverage
When existing employees are outside of open enrollment and need to make changes, you should review the initial login process in order to update contact information, add or delete family members, etc.
Please note that adding a dependent to your Family does not enroll them in coverage. You must use the process outlined in the tutorial publication links in the right toolbar to actually enroll a new dependent into your plan.
You may also experience a ‘Qualified Life Event’ (QLE) during the plan year, which will allow you to make changes to your coverage outside of the Open Enrollment Period such as:
Loss or gain of coverage through your spouse
Loss of eligibility of a covered dependent
Death of your Spouse or Child
Birth or Adoption of a Child
Marriage, Divorce or Legal Separation
Switch from Part-Time to Full-Time Employment
These events are time-sensitive. All enrollment changes MUST be made within 30 days of the event by notifying your HR Department and logging into DC Health Link and reporting the change.
Additionally, you must notify the HR Department immediately after making enrollment changes so that payroll deductions can be changed according to your request.
