Maryland leads the way on Obamacare
Beginning today, millions of Americans — and hundreds of thousands of Marylanders — who could not afford health insurance, or didn't have access to it, will finally be able to sign up for coverage through health marketplaces like the Maryland Health Connection. These marketplaces, where consumers can shop for coverage, were created by the Affordable Care Act to ensure all Americans have access to affordable, quality health coverage. And, thanks to the O'Malley-Brown administration, our state is leading the way in implementing this crucial provision of the law.
