Starting today, Marylanders can shop for health coverage through a new online Marketplace called the Maryland Health Connection. If you live in Maryland and are looking for health coverage, I encourage you to visit www.marylandhealthconnection.gov today to shop, compare, and enroll in a plan that best meets the needs of you and your family. Open enrollment begins on October 1st and continues through the end of March; and if you enroll by December 18th, health coverage will begin on January 1st.
While visiting the Maryland Health Connection, you can check your eligibility for tax credits to help reduce the cost of insurance and to see if to see if you or a family member are eligible for public health programs.
If you need assistance, please call the toll-free hotline, 1-855-642-8572. There is also in-person assistance available throughout the Fifth District. Click here to find a location near you.
As always, thank you for allowing me to share this update with you, and please continue to share your concerns and insights with me by contacting my office or connecting with me on Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube.
