Excerpt: “This will help thousands of people presently uninsured but eligible get enrolled, it helps all of us when someone is uninsured and goes to the hospital with a huge bill everyone’s premiums go up it is a hidden tax,” said Maryland Healthcare for All President Vincent DeMarco.

Maryland Health Care For All is also pushing the General Assembly to expand the state program to have an auto-enrollment option, to help ease the administrative burden faced by those who qualify.

DeMarco says it can help Governor Wes Moore’s administration’s state goal to reach 250-thousand uninsured Marylanders.

DeMarco tells 47ABC his organization will also be pushing to make the expansion of coverage and enrollment subsidies to young people who fall within the Medicaid gap a permanent program, with a hearing in the House set for March 1st.
