BALTIMORE — HealthCare Access Maryland (HCAM)— a Baltimore-based nonprofit working to expand healthcare access— will host an open enrollment event at the Highlandtown Library on Saturday, November 19, 2016, to help Marylanders enroll in health insurance plans through the Affordable Care Act from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Enoch Pratt Free Library in Highlandtown is located at 3601 Eastern Avenue in Baltimore.
Certified navigators will be available to help attendees enroll for the first time, re-enroll in current coverage, change coverage or plans, or shop for new plans. Ten navigators will be available for free, one-on-one consultation, including three who are bilingual.
Over the past three years, HCAM has played a key role as the Connector Entity to help people in Baltimore City, Baltimore County and Anne Arundel County find affordable health insurance and lead healthier lives. This year, HCAM aims to enroll all eligible, uninsured individuals and small businesses in health insurance.
HealthCare Access Maryland was established in 1997 as Baltimore HealthCare Access to initially assist with the Medicaid transition to managed care. After growing steadily, the agency broadened its reach to provide services to people throughout the state and adopted its current name in 2011.
