A Maryland measure that’s the first of its kind could help people without health insurance find out if they qualify for free or low-cost insurance after they file their taxes.
It will create a box for people to check on state income tax returns. If selected, the state’s health care exchange will see if the person qualifies for low-cost insurance, based on information in their tax return.
Gov. Larry Hogan is scheduled to sign the bill Monday.
