Thousands of Marylanders May Have Unqualified Health Insurance

October 31st, 2013 by WCBC Radio

Tens of thousands of Marylanders could soon be told their current health insurance won't cut it under the Affordable Care Act. More than 70,000 health plan customers in the state would be affected after regulators were informed recently by 9 insurance carriers in Maryland that their plans do not qualify, according to The Washington Post.  So far, the numbers being informed of that sort of problem are running into the millions nationwide as insurance carriers.  The White House is blaming the carriers for not conforming to the new law. Many are blaming the President,  who said not long ago that no one would have to give up the health insurance plans they like. The problem is compounded by the roadblocks many are running into on the internet as they try to use the state and federal websites that have been riddled with crashes and other stubborn problems. At last report Maryland's Heatlh Connection had enrolled more than 3,000 clients.  Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley was out front in support of the Affordable Care Act- but he acknowledged that like any new program there are bound to be some growing pains.
