Last Chance for Marylanders to Enroll for Individual Health Insu - WBOC-TV 16, Delmarvas News Leader, FOX 21 -

Time is Running Out to Enroll for Individual Health Insurance in Maryland

Posted: Updated:

MARYLAND- Marylanders have a number of options available to help cover the cost of health care, depending upon their employment status, coverage needs and ability to pay. 

For those who do not receive healthcare from their employers, COBRA, Medicare, Medicade, or Maryland Children's Health Program, enrolling in an individual policy is an option.

However, the enrollment period for 2020 to buy a health or dental plan is this Sunday, Dec. 15 through Maryland Health Connection, the State’s official health insurance marketplace.

With the deadline quickly approaching, Maryland Health Connection is hosting a series of events from Dec. 7 to Dec. 15 for your "Last Chance" to get free, in-person help signing up.

Connection recommends bringing the following items on their website. 

Please bring these items with you:

  • Birthdates
  • Social Security numbers (or document numbers for legal immigrants)
  • Proof of citizenship or immigration status
  • Tax returns for previous years
  • Employer and income info (pay stubs, W-2 forms)
  • Policy numbers for any current health insurance
  • Information about any job-related coverage you or someone in your household is eligible for
  • Photo ID

Open enrollment for 2020 coverage is from Nov. 1-Dec. 15. If you do not enroll in this time period, connection says unless there is a special circumstance, the next time you will get the chance to enroll is Nov. 1, 2020 for 2021 plans.
