President Obama signed the health reform law, known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, on March 23, 2010. The law will expand access to health insurance for millions of Americans starting in 2014. Parts of the law have already gone into effect and are helping more Marylanders get the care they need.
In 2014, people applying for health coverage may qualify for free or low cost health coverage. The question is not whether a person is eligible for coverage, but which program they qualify for.
In Maryland, the Medicaid Program will expand to cover more adults ages 19 to 64, whether they have children or not.
Maryland residents can start applying for Medicaid through Maryland Health Connection on October 1, 2013.
