Maryland Easy Enrollment Health Insurance Program

From Vincent DeMarco of the Maryland Citizens’ Health Initiative:

May 13, 2019

Marylanders Can Now Enroll in Health Insurance via Their State Income Tax Returns

Thanks to Landmark Health Care Bill

Maryland Easy Enrollment Health Insurance Program Will Help Thousands Obtain Health Insurance

Washington, D.C., May 13, 2019 – Today, Governor Larry Hogan, Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller, and House Speaker Adrienne Jones signed a first-of-its-kind health care enrollment bill into law. The Maryland Easy Enrollment Health Insurance Program (MEEHP) will let Marylanders jump-start enrollment into health insurance by simply checking a box on their annual state income tax returns.

The bill, which passed with broad, bipartisan support, should serve as a model by other states and the federal government for expanding health care access in a bipartisan way. To underscore this point, Families USA and the Maryland Citizens’ Health Initiative joined Maryland elected officials for the bill signing in Annapolis.


Moving Forward Podcast: Interview with Joyce Tuten

Kate Sanner, host of Moving Forward, interviews Joyce Tuten, M.S., B.S. Tuten is a high school science teacher who is an expert at teaching science to non-science people. She is a member of the Middletown, Maryland Sustainability Committee, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Climate Steward Educator and a trained Climate Reality Project Leader.

Tuten is passionate about and committed to teaching about climate change and has developed a 60-minute presentation that she offers to groups and organizations. As she describes on her website, this presentation “connects the dots between science, our climate, people and planet – and the solutions”. Tuten recognizes that we all have a moral obligation to act to address the crisis of climate change and her goal is have those who hear her talk “walk away as new ambassadors for understanding and agents for change that will last generations”.
