Enroll in health and dental insurance starting November 1, 2016 at Maryland Health Connection. Maryland's official health insurance marketplace is the only place you can qualify for financial help to make coverage more affordable for you and your family. In 2015, 9 in 10 people qualified for lower costs.
Open Enrollment for a 2017 plan through Maryland Health Connection begins November 1, 2016. Be sure to enroll by December 15, 2016 for your plan to start January 1, 2017. Open Enrollment for 2017 ends January 31, 2017. If you have special circumstances, you still may be
eligible to apply for coverage outside of Open Enrollment. You can apply
for Medicaid year-round.
Maryland Health Connection is the health insurance marketplace
where individuals and families can compare and enroll in qualified health
insurance plans and learn if they qualify for federal tax credits and
cost-sharing reductions to lower their insurance costs. Maryland residents can
also learn if they are eligible for Medicaid or the Maryland Children's Health Program (MCHP) through Maryland Health Connection.
Individuals and families can apply for health insurance outside of open enrollment if they have special
circumstances. Examples of special circumstances include getting married or
divorced, having a baby or losing other health insurance coverage.
Need in-person help?
Maryland residents can apply for health insurance and financial
