UPDATE: Enrollment Deadline Extended to February 5th

Due to the time lost from the recent inclement weather in the Maryland metropolitan area, the Maryland Health Connection has extended the open enrollment deadline to Friday February 5th! Additionally, the Maryland Health Connection call center (1-855-642-8572) will have extended hours this weekend from 8am to 6pm on Saturday and from 10am to 10pm on Sunday. If you still have not enrolled in a health plan and do not have employee sponsored coverage or are not eligible for Medicaid, use this extension as a time to act and get yourself covered!

Last Chance to Enroll!

Sunday January 31st marks the last date to enroll in a qualified health plan made available by the Maryland Health Connection. If you or community member does not have health insurance, and is not eligible for Medicaid, consider enrolling for a health care plan. Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), almost all individuals are required to have health insurance. Individuals who are not covered will be assessed a penalty fine. If you need in-person assistance enrolling in a health plan, visit a Capital Region Health Connector location today.
