Critics Urge Moving Away From Maryland Exchange

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Democratic and Republican critics of Maryland's health exchange are urging state officials to consider other options to signing up state residents for health care plans.
    
Rep. John Delaney, a Democrat, on Monday formally asked for a specific assessment of the idea of switching to the federal health exchange while Maryland's computer-troubled exchange is being repaired. He wrote in a letter to the state's health secretary that Maryland could make the switch in whole or in part or on a temporary basis.
    
On Friday, Gov. Martin O'Malley said he would keep the idea under consideration.
    
Meanwhile, Republican gubernatorial candidate David Craig is urging the state to avoid the exchange and divert marketing and outreach resources to promote direct enrollment options through insurance carriers.
