Congressional Staffers Told Not to Trust DC Obamacare Website

Congressional staffers were told not to trust what DC Health Link told them and to assume they weren’t enrolled until they had physical documentation proving they did. That’s encouraging.

Capitol Hill staffers who signed up for ObamaCare through the Washington, D.C., healthcare exchange, called DC Health Link (DCHL), are being told to confirm their enrollments in person, and not to rely on data provided by the website.

The Hill obtained an email sent to staffers on Wednesday warning them, “it is essential that you confirm your coverage in DCHL through the Disbursing Office.”

“Do not rely on your ‘My Account’ page or other correspondence from DCHL,” the email reads.
“Please do not assume you are covered unless you have seen the confirmation letter from the Disbursing Office,” the email continues.

Capitol Hill workers had until Monday to sign up for healthcare in D.C., where members and their staffs are eligible for a generous employer healthcare subsidy from the government.

DC Health Link, the online healthcare portal for the District, has experienced a number of technical issues over the last few weeks.
