When can I enroll in a health plan through Maryland Health Connection?

If you qualify for Medicaid, MCHP, or MCHP Premium, you can enroll in those programs at any time.

Open Enrollment to buy a qualified health plan for 2017 is from Nov. 1, 2016 to Jan. 31, 2017.

Outside of the annual Open Enrollment period, you can buy a plan or change plans only if you’ve had special circumstances like having a baby or losing other health coverage. Learn more here about whether you may qualify and how to enroll.

Note, the open enrollment period does not apply to Medicaid, MCHP, or MCHP Premium. If you believe you or your children may be eligible these programs, you can use Maryland Health Connection to sign up at any time throughout the year.
