MD Announces Connector Program On Health Overhaul

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland has announced the launch of a program to help residents get health insurance under the federal health care law.
    
Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown and the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange announced the start of the Connector Program on Thursday. About $24 million in state and federal grants will be used to fund six organizations. They will provide consumer assistance and enrollment resources throughout Maryland.
    
Brown says the initiative will create more than 300 jobs.
    
A regional approach is being taken to provide in-person assistance as the new health insurance coverage options become available in October. Each organization will help consumers learn about and apply for an appropriate health insurance product, including Medicaid, the Maryland Children's Health Program and subsidized and non-subsidized qualified health plans.
