The Maryland Health
Connection, a creation of the Affordable Care Act, opened for business on October 1, 2013. In Baltimore City, the principal source
of information and enrollment services for residents is Healthcare Access Maryland (HCAM).
HCAM staff are trained to help you explore your
potential new insurance options under the Affordable Care Act, to recommend
appropriate insurance coverage, and to assist you in enrolling with an
insurance provider through the new statewide marketplace.
Navigators from HCAM are available to help you in person at
the Central Library on
Tuesdays from 10am to 6pm, and on Fridays from 11am to 2pm. The service is
