Nearly half-million enrolled in Maryland Health Connection for 2015

Nearly a half-million Marylanders — 493,346 — have enrolled in quality, affordable health coverage through Maryland Health Connection for 2015.

That includes 126,346 people enrolled in private Qualified Health Plans and 367,000 enrolled in Medicaid from Nov. 15, 2014 through July 5, 2015. About 92 percent of enrollees through the state’s health insurance marketplace are receiving some form of financial assistance.

Medicaid enrollments are year-round. And while open enrollment for private health insurance for 2015 coverage ended in February, people may still enroll if they have a qualified “life event.”

Through the first eight months of this enrollment year for 2015 coverage, Maryland Health Connection has surpassed total enrollments during its first year of operation a year ago. In 2014, more than 81,000 individuals gained private insurance and more than 376,000 were enrolled in Medicaid from Nov. 1, 2014 through September 2015 in the state-based marketplace.
