Cost-sharing Reductions

A discount that lowers the amount you have to pay out-of-pocket for deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments.

In order to get this reduction, you must

  • Qualify to get health insurance through Maryland Health Connection;
  • Have income below a certain level;
  • Enroll in a Silver-level qualified health plan through Maryland Health Connection; and
  • Meet other requirements, such as filing an annual federal tax return.

If you're a member of a federally recognized tribe, you may qualify for additional cost-sharing benefits.
