Nonprofit HR recently hosted a DC Health Benefits Exchange Town Hall in collaboration with the Nonprofit Roundtable of Greater Washington and the newly renamed DC Health Link (formerly DC Health Benefit Exchange). At this meeting, leaders of local nonprofits as well as insurance professionals and other stakeholders were able to get their questions answered regarding the impact of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on small businesses in the District of Columbia.
A presentation from DC Health Link Director of Business Development, Kelvin Robinson, and Senior Deputy Director for Policy and Exchange Programs, Debbie Curtis, covered the “need-to-know” information for leaders of small businesses. This included an overview of the goals of the ACA as well as the new rights, benefits and responsibilities with regard to insurance coverage for employees. Furthermore, their presentation included a breakdown of what role DC Health Link plays in this process and the benefits provided to small business leaders by their marketplace. Following the presentation from DC Health Link was a thorough “Q&A” during which the representatives from DC Health Link as well as insurance broker Joe Potosky and policy analyst Wes Rivers took questions from the audience. Overall, feedback received about the event indicates that attendees found the material “timely, relevant and important.”
