I live in Maryland, but work in another state. Where should I apply for coverage?

First, if your employer offers coverage, you may want to sign up for insurance through your job. If you enroll in your employer’s coverage, it does not matter that you live and work in different states.

If you choose not to be covered by your employer’s insurance, or your family members are not offered coverage through your employer and do not have their own employer-sponsored coverage, you may obtain individual or family coverage through Maryland Health Connection if you are a Maryland resident. You need to be a resident of Maryland to sign up for coverage through us, but you do not need to work in the State of Maryland.

As a Maryland resident, you may also be eligible for Medicaid coverage. You can apply for Medicaid coverage using Maryland Health Connection at any time regardless of whether you have coverage through an employer’s health plan.
