Submit Your Comments on the State Benchmark Plan by July 13

The Maryland Health Benefit Exchange was tasked to create a workgroup to help determine whether the current benchmark plan meets the needs of the individual market. Consumer Health First founder and Board Member, Leni Preston chaired the workgroup., which concluded its work on April 26, 2019. The workgroup has drafted recommendations to be presented to the MHBE Board of Trustees on whether to modify the current State Benchmark Plan.

MHBE is seeking comments on the State Benchmark Plan Work Group Draft Report, and will incorporate comments until July 13, 2019.
