Maryland residents can visit Maryland Health Connection to determine if they qualify for federal tax subsidies or cost-sharing reductions to help pay for health insurance or if they, or a member of their family, is eligible for Medicaid or another program such as the Children’s Health Insurance Program. Small businesses will utilize authorized brokers to find plans that best meet the needs of employees and qualify for tax credits. Maryland Health Connection also serves as a resource with useful links to other programs, both public and private, that can provide information and help today.
Maryland Health Connection works with health insurance carriers, insurance producers, assisters and advocates and is supported by a statewide consolidated call center. In-person assistance is available statewide by individuals known as “navigators.”
