Gov. Larry Hogan announced Monday the new enrollment period begins immediately and will run until March 15.
It’s being opened due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the recent rise in the positivity rate throughout the state.
Coverage dates will vary based on when a Marylander enrolls in a plan.
Coverage starts Jan. 1 for people who enroll between now and Jan. 15.
Those who enroll between Jan. 16 and Feb. 15 will have coverage start Feb. 1.
