Today on Midday on Health Care, Tom sorts through the many changes that have taken place in the health care options available to Marylanders, as they shop for plans during the current Open Season, which began on November 1 and ends on December 15.
Tom talks with Michele Eberle, the executive director of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange, the state’s marketplace for private health insurance plans and Medicaid, services offered through its online Maryland Health Connection and the MHC mobile app.
Later, Tom is joined by Vincent DeMarco, the president of the Maryland Citizens Health Initiative Education Fund, a non-profit group established to educate Marylanders about ways to achieve quality, affordable health care. The group pursues its Healthcare For All mission, in coalition with community, business and religious partners, by advocating with policy makers to support improved health care access for everyone in the state.
