Health Care Reform – The Maryland Rollout

MACo’s Winter Conference is just around the corner, December 11-13, 2013 at the Hyatt in Cambridge, Maryland.  Join us on Thursday afternoon, December 12, 2013; 2:15 pm – 3:15 pm, for a session on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) in Maryland, titled “Report from the Front: Rolling Out Maryland’s Health Benefits Exchange.”

Sally Smith of Maryland’s Health Benefits Exchange will provide an overview of ACA implementation in Maryland, while representatives of healthcare “connector” entities serving counties in Western Maryland and the Eastern Shore will discuss the progress of their outreach and enrollment programs, including lessons learned and adjustments they are making to their strategies.  Director Gloria Brown of Prince George’s County’s Department of Social Services will provide comment on how the ACA will change operations at the local level.

Description:  Maryland’s Health Connection, Maryland’s new health insurance marketplace, opened in October 2013. Maryland’s six “connector” entities started outreach to individuals and small employers for eligibility determination and enrollment into Medicaid and other new qualified health plans in July 2013. In this session, we will hear a report on the progress of Maryland’s Health Exchange from two regional connector entities and a representative of a local health care navigator. Presenters will discuss the transition to health care under the Affordable Care Act.
