Health Care Reform

Health Care Reform

Our mission is to advance high-quality, affordable health care services and to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve. Currently, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) remains the law. All Kaiser Permanente plans provide the coverage mandated by the ACA, so you can feel confident that your employees are getting great health protection.

Discussions and potential legislation, such as the American Health Care Act (AHCA), which could change ACA are ongoing. We will continue to work with policymakers to encourage a stable transition and care for our membership.

As a small business with 1 to 50 full-time-equivalent employees, you have a couple of options to consider about how best to invest in the health of your employees:

Maryland businesses
  1. Continue purchasing group coverage directly from an insurer.
  2. Purchase from the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) via Maryland Health Connection by working with SHOP Administrator, Benefit Mall.
Virginia businesses
  1. Continue purchasing group coverage directly from an insurer.
  2. Send your employees to to purchase on the individual health insurance exchange or direct to an insurer.
Washington, DC businesses
  1. Continue purchasing small group coverage from SHOP directly from DC Health Link.
  2. Send your employees to DC Health Link for individual coverage.1
