How do I view plans?
You can start comparing health plans in October. Use the “Get an Estimate” tool to browse plans and see how much you can save. It only takes five minutes to see what coverage and savings you may qualify for.
You can apply Nov. 1–Jan.15 for the plan that best fits you and your family.
Nine out of 10 people who enroll through Maryland Health Connection get financial help to pay for their plan.
What is new for 2022?
The American Rescue Plan Act offers more financial help for individuals and families who qualify for a private health plan. The law also helps more people get financial help for the first time, helping middle-income Marylanders get covered.
Even if you’ve looked before, it’s worth coming back, because there are now savings available for households at all income levels.
If I’m already enrolled, do I need to do anything?
If you decide not to update your account information during open enrollment, you will be enrolled automatically into a plan similar to your 2021 insurance plan. We encourage you to take a look at 2022 plans to see what fits your needs and budget. If you’d like to change your plan for 2022, log into your account during open enrollment Nov. 1–Jan. 15, and select Change My Plan. If you cancel your 2021 plan, you will not be enrolled automatically for 2022 coverage.
If I need to renew my Medicaid, should I re-apply during open enrollment?
Currently all Medicaid coverage is extended until Dec. 31, 2021 due to the coronavirus emergency. You’ll receive a second notice before Medicaid benefits end. If you need assistance to renew, but wait until after Jan. 15 to seek help, you'll experience shorter wait times at our call center and when searching for in-person assistance.
What if I need coverage before Jan. 1, 2022?
You may be eligible for a special enrollment period. Certain life events qualify you to apply outside of open enrollment. Visit MarylandHealthConnection.gov to enroll, or download our free Enroll MHC mobile app.
