Calls to Action

The ACA and the District of Columbia

When I buy my individual or small group policy, including though the District of Columbia's health insurance marketplace, will applied behavior analysis (ABA), be covered?

Yes. Insurers that offer new coverage to individuals and small businesses are expected to cover ABA beginning in 2014. The District imposes no dollar caps on the amount of ABA that must be provided each year.


Where can I learn more about the District of Columbia's health insurance marketplace?

Your marketplace is called DC Health Link. Learn more here.


Did the District of Columbia choose to expand its Medicaid program?

Yes. The District will expand its Medicaid program in 2014 to cover households with incomes up to 133 percent of the federal poverty level. That works out to about $15,800 a year for individuals or $32,500 for a family of four. Learn more here about your options.
