Clutch hit for health care

The Maryland Health Care for All! Coalition today joined with the Frederick Keys, the Baltimore Orioles’ Class A minor-league team, to announce a new radio ad campaign in English and Spanish to encourage Marylanders to enroll in health care under the Affordable Care Act. The commercial features Frederick Keys star Adrian Marin.

The campaign will help get the word out to Marylanders who are in the market for quality, affordable health insurance as the Dec. 18 deadline for full 2015 coverage approaches. Open enrollment continues until Feb. 15, 2015.  “With help from the Frederick Keys we will make sure people know that they can call 211 to get information about health benefits and significant subsidies available to them,” said Vincent DeMarco, president of the Health Care for All! Coalition.

“Adrian Marin and all of us, at the Frederick Keys are proud to be working with the Maryland Health Care for All! Coalition to make sure Marylanders know about the health coverage available to them,” said Frederick Keys Broadcasting and Public Relations Manager Geoff Arnold. “We hope as many people as possible who are eligible for benefits get enrolled.”

“We are thrilled to announce this new ad that will allow us all to continue to build upon the recent successes of the current open enrollment period, “ said Carolyn Quattrocki, executive director of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange. “Partnerships with Health Care for All!, the Frederick Keys, and many others are crucial to help get the word out that all Marylanders have an opportunity to shop around to reenroll, or obtain health care coverage for the first time.”

Thanks again to Health Care for All!,  a coalition of more than 1,200 faith, labor, business and community groups. It is working to guarantee that all Marylanders have access to quality and affordable health care.
