Maryland Health Connection is the state’s official health insurance marketplace. It’s your one-stop shop to browse plans and compare coverage and costs.
This year, rates are lower across many health plans. Even if you’ve shopped before, it’s worth coming back to check out your options. Plans and prices change every year. You’ll be able to find something that works for your needs and budget.
Last year, nine out of 10 people who enrolled got financial help to pay for their health plan. Chances are you can, too. It’s worth taking a look.

You can sign up online at MarylandHealthConnection.gov, by calling our call center, or even through our mobile app, “Enroll MHC.” And if you need some help, we’ve got experts. You can get free, in-person help. Find an expert near you at MarylandHealthConnection.gov/help.
