I was found eligible for Medicaid when I applied for benefits using Maryland Health Connection. Do I need to take any additional steps to enroll in coverage?

Completing the Maryland Health Connection application to get an eligibility determination and actually enrolling in coverage is a two-step process:

  • First, you will receive an eligibility determination.
  • Next, you must select a program to enroll in.
    To actually enroll in coverage online, you must select the checkbox next to the program in which you would like to enroll from the eligibility determination list, click “Proceed to Enrollment,” and follow the system prompts. Simply reaching the eligibility determination screen will not enroll you in coverage.

If you have outstanding verifications, this information will also need to be submitted.
