Baltimore Orioles centerfielder Adam Jones will hold a press conference Friday afternoon, Jan. 30, with health care advocates and state officials to announce a new radio ad featuring Jones urging Marylanders to call 211 or go to MarylandHealthConnection.gov to find out about their eligibility for health care coverage. The ads are sponsored by the Maryland Health Care For All! Coalition and will run through the end of open enrollment on Feb. 15.
Jones will be joined at the press conference by Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake; Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh; Carolyn Quattrocki, executive director of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange; Vincent DeMarco, president of the Maryland Health Care For All! Coalition; Kathleen Westcoat, executive director of HealthCare Access Maryland, and Baltimore City Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen.
“I am proud to have a role in helping Marylanders find out what health benefits are available to them,” Jones said. “It is important and our message is simple: Call 211 or go to MarylandHealthConnection.gov to learn more about your health benefit options.”
“We thank Adam for doing this very important ad,” Quattrocki said. “Together, we will get the word out to all eligible Marylanders, including many young people in their 20s and 30s who need quality, affordable coverage.”
