Application Counselor Program

The application counselor program allows organizations to hire and oversee application counselors who assist people in getting health coverage through Maryland Health Connection. The program is a two-year term and may be renewed for an additional two years. Being part of the program means neither your organization nor the counselors receive funds from the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange. 

Application Counselor Benefits:

  • free onboarding & ongoing training
  • access to job aids and information about upcoming policy & system changes
  • partner with local navigators & our team at Maryland Health Connection
  • dedicated phone line support for assistance with consumers 
  • quarterly meetings with Maryland Health Benefit Exchange

The Application Counselor Program is free! We will train as many application counselors as you would like at no cost. 

For more information or an application for the program, please contact the program manager.
