Connecting patients to affordable health insurance

by Medical Staff Office on October 29, 2013

As of October 1, Maryland Health Connection, the state’s new health insurance marketplace, opened, making it simpler and more affordable for an estimated 250,000 uninsured Marylanders to purchase health insurance.

AAMC is working to raise public awareness of these new health insurance options by offering guidance through our patient financial services department and making sure hospital staff are aware of where patients and their families can go to find out if they are eligible and submit an application. One of our greatest resources is our team of assisters. Based in our financial assistance office (in the Hospital Pavilion North near the first floor lobby) and our
community clinics, they will help individuals understand their insurance options. Anyone who needs assistance understanding the new exchanges and options available to them can contact the assisters and set up an appointment to discuss their options. They can be reached by calling x1782.

By working together to get our community members the proper health insurance they need and deserve, our neighbors and our hospital can be healthier—and that helps everyone.
