Marylanders without health insurance have an extra opportunity to purchase it on the state’s individual market as the state offers a special enrollment period amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Maryland Health Benefit Exchange announced the extra enrollment period will begin Monday and run for 30 days through April 15. There are no preconditions on people enrolling during this period.

“This is not (just) for someone who has been diagnosed. This is for anybody,” said Michele Eberle, the exchange’s executive director. “Anybody on the individual marketplace that doesn’t have health insurance today and is concerned and wishes they would have gotten it last fall, this is an opportunity.”
