The Maryland Health Connection enrollment period began Oct. 1, 2013 and will continue through March 2014. The Connection, a major component of the Affordable Care Act, is the health benefit exchange in Maryland. Benefits will become available in the beginning of January.
As with any large scale roll out, applicants have had to deal with some glitches. The best answers right now are patience and perseverance. Once the kinks are worked out, Maryland residents will be able to take advantage of affordable, high quality care.
Along with the enrollment process, Maryland leaders continue to educate the public on what the new law means. U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings hosted a forum on that attracted more than 400 stakeholders. Kudos to Cummings, his diligent staff and the Black Caucus Foundations for a job well done. Click here to see the forum videos.
