Health Care Exchange Fix Submitted

January 11th, 2014 by WCBC Radio

Governor Martin O’Malley’s administration formally introduced emergency legislation Thursday that is designed to address problems of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange, the state’s website set up for people to buy insurance under the Affordable Care Act. The O’Malley Administration estimates the bill will cost taxpayers between $5-million and $10-million. It would allow those who have not been able to sign up for insurance through the state's benefit exchange, to be enrolled in the Maryland Health Insurance Program (MHIP), as a temporary policy.

Coverage would be retroactive to January 1. It would expire on March 31.
