Disponible en inglés: If you are already enrolled in a qualified health plan, you may not be disenrolled when you turn 65 and are eligible for Medicare. You may remain enrolled in your qualified health plan coverage as long as you pay your premium, but once eligible for Medicare, you will no longer be eligible for financial assistance.

Whether you are eligible for Medicare or not, you can still enroll in a dental plan through Maryland Health Connection. Starting in 2016, standalone dental plans are available through Maryland Health Connection even if you do not purchase a QHP.
