Maryland Health Benefit Exchange
Maryland’s health exchange board approved a plan Monday to allow eligible small businesses to begin offering employees small group health plans and to access federal tax credits in April, but the state is pushing back the launch of a website for the program until Jan. 1, 2015.
The executive director of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange says the state’s online marketplace for health insurance has been improved after days of delays due to a deluge of visitors.
Maryland will make information related to its health benefit exchange available through public information requests.
A measure to further implement federal health care reform in Maryland passed the House of Delegates on a 93-43 vote Monday with little debate.
