“Maryland will open enrollment Sunday for health insurance plans created under the Affordable Care Act amid a rise in coronavirus cases and a looming Supreme Court challenge to the law.
Demand is expected to be high as a result of the pandemic, which has infected more than 143,000 Marylanders and put tens of thousands out of work.
