Value Plans, a popular choice unveiled last year, offer lower deductibles and increased access to primary care, mental health care, and generic drugs before deductibles apply. All health plans include important benefits, like COVID-19 testing and treatment, substance use disorder treatment, doctor visits and more.

“During this challenging time, we are hopeful that because most people will benefit from decreased plan prices for the third year in a row, we can provide accessible, affordable coverage to even more Marylanders,” said Michele Eberle, executive director of Maryland Health Benefit Exchange. It’s more important than ever to make sure you and your family have access to health care.”

Consumers can enroll online at, through the free “Enroll MHC” mobile app, or by calling 1-855-642-8572. Also, more than 700 trained brokers and navigators are available to help by phone and virtually.

This open enrollment period is for private health and dental plans only. People who have coverage through Medicaid will receive a notice when it’s time to renew. Those who qualify for Medicaid may enroll any time of year.
