Maryland Policy

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

The most surprising development in Maryland this month wasn’t a snowstorm but the fact that the General Assembly and Gov. Larry Hoganput politics aside to pass a lawthat will rescue the state’s entrepreneurs and small business employees from skyrocketing health care costs.

Maryland lawmakers just approved a bill that will curb the cost of health insurance premiums for 150,000 residents through a $380 million reinsurance program. That's money that can be used by insurers to pay for some of the costliest claims made by customers who purchased insurance through Maryland’s health insurance marketplace. States like Maryland are looking at these programs because they can help stabilize premiums in the individual marketplace by helping to compensate insurers for their most expensive customers.
