WANDRA ASHLEY-WILLIAMS APPOINTED TO ADVISORY GROUP FORMED TO HELP LAUNCH MARYLAND’S NEW EASY ENROLLMENT PROGRAM
A work group created to improve health plan benefits and affordability
Baltimore (Aug. 7, 2019) – A new advisory work group to help plan and implement Maryland’s new “easy enrollment” program for state tax filers has been created by the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange (MHBE). The work group will advise the MHBE Board of Trustees and other agencies on the rollout of the Maryland Easy Enrollment Health Insurance Program (MEEHP) in spring 2020. Uninsured Marylanders will be notified about their options for free or low-cost health coverage if they indicate on their 2019 state tax return that members of their household lack health insurance. Governor Larry Hogan signed the program into law May 13.
“We value and appreciate the insight of our work group members. They are dedicated to improving the health of Marylanders through strengthening the Maryland Health Connection marketplace, and we thank them for their support,” said MHBE Executive Director Michele Eberle.
