With health insurance, you’re protected from the unexpected.

BALTIMORE (Nov. 1, 2022) – Marylanders can now enroll in health plans for 2023 on, the state’s health insurance marketplace.

Open enrollment runs from Nov. 1, 2022, through Jan. 15, 2023. Coverage starts Jan. 1, 2023, for plans selected before Dec. 31, and coverage starts on Feb. 1, 2023, for plans selected the first two weeks of January. This open enrollment period is for private plans only. Those who qualify for Medicaid may enroll any time of year.

“Many of the savings available in 2022 have been extended into 2023, resulting in free and low-cost plans.” said Michele Eberle, executive director of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange. “Accidents happen. You never know when you might need emergency care or a visit to a doctor or specialist. With health insurance, you’re covered for when the unexpected happens.”

The Inflation Reduction Act means that everyone who enrolls through Maryland Health Connection will be eligible for savings. Maryland’s average monthly premium was second lowest in the nation last year. For the second year in a row, young adults ages 18-34 will have special discounts — on top of other savings available through Maryland Health Connection.

All plans available through Maryland Health Connection cover important health benefits, including doctor visits, prescriptions, mental health services, and more.
