- DC Healthcare Update -
Enrollment for Small Hispanic Businesses is open. The law states that small businesses are companies that have between 1 and 50 full-time employees, which are not required by law to provide health insurance to their employees. However, the new law provides a variety of health insurance plans, which represent large fiscal and employment benefits for the employer. The Chamber can provide advice, at no cost, from a certified assister or a certified broker by DC Health Link to study your case. Please schedule your appointment by writing to: firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 202-728-0352.
