Marylanders can enroll in a 2022 health plan and get savings through Maryland Health Connection. until Jan. 15, 2022, for coverage beginning Feb. 1.

“We encourage all Marylanders to get their COVID vaccine, including their booster if they are eligible. All COVID vaccines are free,” said Michele Eberle, executive director of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange. “Because the virus is unpredictable, the next best thing you can do is get a health plan so you can be prepared for whatever happens. Give yourself the peace of mind that comes with having health insurance. Now is not the time to leave your health to chance.”

New federal and state laws offer financial help for those who did not qualify in the past. The state subsidy lowers costs for young adults ages 18-34. This enrollment period is for private health plans only. Those who qualify for Medicaid may enroll any time of year.
