Brown To Testify On Health Reform Legislation

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown will be outlining the latest steps in Maryland to implement federal health care reform.
    
Brown is scheduled to testify Wednesday on legislation before a House panel and a Senate committee.
    
The measure includes an expansion of Medicaid. It also creates a dedicated funding stream for the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange from the existing premium tax on health insurers.
    
The bill includes provisions to move enrollees of the Maryland Health Insurance Plan into the exchange in a way that eases their transition and potential impact on rates.
    
Brown, a Democrat, has been leading the health care reform effort for Gov. Martin O'Malley's administration, which has embraced the federal Affordable Care Act.
