What is Maryland Health Connection:

Go to Maryland Health Connection to:
- Shop, compare, and enroll in a plan that best meets you and your family’s needs

|• Doctor’s visits||• Prescriptions|
|• Hospitalization||• Medical tests|
|• Emergency care||• Mental health care|
|• Maternity care treatment||• Substance abuse treatment|

Maryland residents who do not have access to health coverage through their employer are eligible to enroll through the online portal. To access the portal go to: www.marylandhealthconnection.gov.
