What is a qualified health plan (QHP)?

A qualified health plan or “Marketplace plan” is a health plan that has been certified by Maryland Health Connection to meet certain standards. All of our qualified health plans qualify as minimum essential coverage. So, if you buy one, you will not have to worry about a penalty for not having insurance when you file your taxes. And, all of our qualified health plans cover essential health benefits and meet our other standards.
