County Leads State in Affordable Health Care Enrollments

As of early January, more than 156,300 Marylanders have enrolled in quality, affordable health coverage for calendar year 2015, since the 90-day open enrollment period began November 15. Of that total, Montgomery County had enrolled just over 36,000, leading the state.

Marylanders can enroll by January 18 for coverage effective February 1 and, if eligible, for an Advanced Premium Tax Credit (APTC), to immediately lower their monthly insurance bills.

Maryland residents enrolled for 2014 should re-enroll by January 18 for an Advanced Premium Tax Credit that begins February 1. They will receive any tax credit owed for January 2015 when they file their federal income tax return in 2016.

Open enrollment for 2015 for Maryland Health Connection ends February. 15.
