Maryland Health Insurance Plan Makes Cost, Benefit Changes

Maryland has made changes to the federal program that offers health insurance to state residents with pre-existing conditions, according to a Baltimore Sun report.

The program was created under the federal healthcare reform law and intended to assist those who could not buy health insurance until 2014, when new health insurance exchanges are set to launch.

Starting this July, the high-deductible federal plan will require "co-insurance" payments when participants use hospitals and behavioral health services. Premiums for the plan will also drop 4 percent.
