Retroactive Coverage Possible for Health Care Customers

January 16th, 2014 by WCBC Radio

Maryland officials said this week they were beginning outreach to customers about an agreement with insurers to provide retroactive coverage for those who unsuccessfully tried to get health care through the state's glitch-plagued health care exchange. People who seek insurance under the changes will need to demonstrate that they tried to enroll before Jan. 1. Some skeptical lawmakers questioned how the state could do that. Brown said the state has the capability to confirm someone tried to get insured through the state's computer system, even if the confirmation process was not 100 percent.  Although there is little question that the process has been riddled with problems from day one, Lt Governor Anthony Brown- who has been in charge of the programs implementation-  is choosing to accentuate the positive at this point.
