Maryland Easy Enrollment Health Insurance Program
This tax season, Marylanders will be able to sign up for health coverage through an innovative new pilot program.
Beginning in 2020, you can indicate on your tax return if you would like the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange, the state agency that runs Maryland Health Connection, to estimate your eligibility for coverage. This selection launches an easy process that will help you enroll.
How it works:
- On your 2020 Tax Forms 502 and 502B, you must indicate whether you, your spouse, and/or your dependents have health insurance coverage.
- If you are uninsured, then select to authorize the Comptroller to share information from your tax return with the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange (MHBE) to determine pre-eligibility for free or low-cost health care coverage.
- After filing your taxes, MHBE will send you a letter indicating whether you are preliminarily eligible for coverage through Maryland Health Connection (Maryland’s health insurance marketplace) and asking you to take further steps to confirm eligibility and enroll.
- To complete enrollment, you can visit MarylandHealthConnection.gov, call 855.642.8572, or receive free in-person assistance from trained experts throughout the state.
