healthcare access marylandHealthCare Access Maryland (HCAM) will host its final health insurance enrollment assistance event on Saturday, January 16th at the Hilton Doubletree Hotel in Annapolis. Certified Navigators will be enrolling consumers into Medicaid as well as commercial health insurance plans through Maryland Health Connection.

The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Participants interested in enrolling on-site should bring a valid state ID or driver’s license, proof of income, Social Security card, and if applicable, tax information and immigration card. 

While the uninsured rate has fallen from year to year, there are still nearly 308,000 eligible, but uninsured residents in Maryland. This enrollment cycle, HCAM is targeting hard-to-reach consumers in Baltimore City, Baltimore County and Anne Arundel County who are eligible to enroll in a Qualified Health Plan but are still uninsured.

HCAM’s offices in these areas will be open throughout the enrollment cycle to receive calls and appointments from consumers seeking free, in-person assistance with first-time enrollment or re-enrollment in a health insurance plan. The events in Baltimore City, Highlandtown and Annapolis are offered to accommodate the demand for enrollment help.

In 2016, eligible, uninsured Marylanders could face an increased penalty if coverage is not secured by the end of the enrollment period.

HealthCare Access Maryland has three locations with weekday hours in Baltimore City, and weekend hours to accommodate visitors to their two satellite offices:
