House To Review Insurance, Cyberbullying Bills

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland's House of Delegates will likely vote Tuesday on a plan to help residents who have struggled with the state's health insurance exchange online.
    
The bill would let customers sign up for retroactive coverage in the Maryland Health Insurance Plan, a separate safety net plan.
    
Private insurance companies in the health exchange opened similar retroactive coverage options, but a deadline to register was last week.
    
The Senate approved the bill Jan. 21.
    
Also this week, Del. Jon Cardin, a Democrat running for attorney general, will push for an expansion of "Grace's Law."
    
The version that passed last year makes it a misdemeanor to physically threaten or emotionally harm children over social media. Cardin wants it to protect adults as well.
    
He will testify before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.
