Frequently Asked Questions Insurance

I am a Member of Congress or designated congressional staff. Do I need to purchase coverage for all of my eligible family members under my DC Health Link enrollment?

No.  DC Health Link rules allow you to select which of your eligible family members you would like to cover. Remember that the only eligible family members under FEHB rules are spouses and children under age 26 (including legally adopted children, recognized natural children, stepchildren and foster children who meet certain requirements) and children age 26 or over who are incapable of self-support because of a physical or mental disability that existed before the child reached age 26.  Note: If you have a court or administrative order to provide coverage for a child, you must include that child in your DC Health Link plan or be able to prove that you have purchased other coverage for him or her.
