HEALTH INSURANCE MARYLAND




As far as state administered health insurance Maryland is on par with their provision as many other states are. State and local officials in Maryland and many other states work together to create a health insurance plan for all residents who do not otherwise qualify for or do not have medical health insurance available to them. There are certain eligibility requirements to qualify, but when it comes to giving all residents access to health insurance Maryland has a solid plan.

For residents in need of health insurance Maryland offers the Maryland Health Insurance Plan (MHIP). A person may be eligible if they are not eligible for group health insurance, COBRA, or any government assisted health insurance. They may also qualify if they have been denied coverage for medical reasons or a certain medical condition, are receiving unemployment, or are eligible only for limited coverage health insurance.

The plan was developed under the Health Insurance Safety Net Act of 2002 and offers four different plan types. The types of plans vary based on the annual deductible applied to the plan. The high deductible plan carries a deductible of $2500 per year, but has the lowest monthly premiums. Deductibles ranging from $500 to the higher deductible can be chosen.

Benefits under the plan are based on seeking medical treatment from preferred network providers, or in other words a doctor who has chosen to accept the plan under a contract. When service is sought from a preferred provider, coverage is typically paid at a percentage of total cost after the deductible is met. As with all health insurance, Maryland Health Insurance Plan may have certain limitations to the services it will cover.

This plan should not be overlooked by individuals seeking medical health insurance who are self-employed or work as independent contractors. Compare the cost and benefits of this plan to private company policies carefully. You may find that the premiums, which are based on age, are more affordable than other coverage. The plan is governed by a board of directors that operates as an independent unit of the Maryland Insurance Administration.

MHIP is different from state or federally subsidized health care. Policy holders are responsible for paying their own premiums with out financial assistance. However, by applying a large group participation, the plan is offered at an affordable price. For those who cannot afford to pay the premiums, government assisted health insurance might be an option. There are different qualifying factors that apply to government assisted health care and include income verification. You can contact the Maryland Department of Health for additional information. However, if you are comparing plans for individual coverage and do not have access to employer sponsored health insurance, Maryland Health Insurance Plan might be a good option.
