Why is Maryland Health Connection requesting access to my future tax return information?

At the end of the application for health coverage, you will be asked to confirm whether Maryland Health Connection may use your tax return information to determine whether you qualify for financial help with your coverage in future years.

You can choose to give Maryland Health Connection permission for less than five years, or zero years, and you can change your answer at any time.

Maryland Health Connection uses data from a variety of courses, including your tax return, to determine whether you are eligible for financial help paying for health insurance each year. If you choose not to allow Maryland Health Connection to use this information, your financial help will not be automatically renewed each year, and you will need to reapply every year during the annual Open Enrollment period.
