In a first for the nation, Maryland will allow its residents to sign up for health insurance when they file their taxes in 2020, according to American University Radio station WAMU 88.5.

Under the measure, signed into law May 13 by Republican Gov. Larry Hogan, Maryland residents can check a box on their tax forms that will ask, “Are you insured now?” If residents check no and are eligible for Medicaid, residents will be automatically enrolled in the program unless they object.
