Options for Healthcare in Maryland's Health Insurance Marketplace
Prior to shopping the health insurance marketplace in Maryland, speak to a knowledgeable, licensed agent. Here are some things to consider when working with your HealthMarkets agent:
- Determine your budget. Getting a policy with an affordable premium is important.
- See if you qualify for a subsidy. Many Maryland residents are happy to discover that they can get a tax credit to help cover the costs of insurance.
- Think about deductibles. A low premium can be great. But if your burden of up-front payments is more than you can afford, your policy isn’t helping you.
- Choose a plan that your provider accepts. Unless you're looking to change doctors, check for the policies that your provider accepts.
