The ACA has provided coverage to over 400,000 Marylanders. But, this progress is in danger because of the federal decision not to enforce the individual mandate.

Please contact your legislators and urge them to co-sponsor legislation to be introduced by Senator Brian Feldman and Delegate Joseline Peña-Melnyk to create a Health Insurance Down Payment Plan.

This plan would give people without health coverage a choice: either pay a penalty to the state or instead use that money to purchase quality, affordable healthcare. Not only would this help stabilize the individual market, but it could incentivize over 130,000 more Marylanders get the coverage they need.
