The cost of your monthly health insurance premium is shared with the District government, which contributes up to 75 percent toward the total premium cost. All health insurance premium deductions are made on a pre-tax basis, unless a specific waiver form is requested. A Pre-Tax Benefits Waiver Form is available online and also at the DCHR Employee Service Center located at One Judiciary Square, 441 4th Street, NW, Lobby Level.
