Maryland State Insurance Exchange
Exchange:
The Maryland Insurance Exchange (Marketplace) is called the Maryland Health Connection. The Maryland Health Benefit Exchange is administered by the State of Maryland.
General information about the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange can be found at: http://www.marylandhealthconnection.gov/.
Learn more: Background
 
 
Patients:
The Maryland Health Benefit Exchange is essentially a marketplace for individuals and small businesses with up to 100 employees to shop for health insurance if they do not already have insurance coverage from another source. If they have insurance from another source (such as employment, retirement benefits, or spousal benefits), they do not need to obtain it from the Marketplace.
HIV Providers:

Providers must contract with each of the plans in the marketplace individually in order to fully participate in the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange.
 
This process is similar to enrolling in insurance or managed care organization provider networks. See below for a list of insurers participating in the state marketplace, and information on contacting them.
As an HIV provider, you may qualify for the designation, of an “Essential Community Provider (ECP).” The Qualified Health Plans participating in the Insurance Exchange (Marketplace) are required to contract with a minimum number of ECPs and Specialists to ensure network adequacy.
 
Visit our Provider Resources Section for more specific instructions to assist you in contacting health plans.
