Advisory Working Groups

A top priority of the HBX is building stakeholder partnerships and engaging consumer and community groups in developing, implementing and operating DC Health Link.  The board and executive director of the HBX firmly believe that to build a successful health insurance exchange where residents, families and small businesses can choose quality affordable health plans, it must be built from the ground up and involve everyone.

The resources of sister government agencies, health care leaders, community advocates, small business owners and industry professionals must be leveraged in working together to establish a health insurance exchange that meets the needs of consumers and businesses.

The process for involving stakeholders is through the Advisory Working Groups. These working groups are chaired by a board member and vice chaired by a member of the HBX Standing Advisory Board. The groups are given topic specific issues to address within set time-frames. Stakeholders will be asked to serve as members on the working groups and share their professional expertise.
