How to Enroll

Enrollment in HealthChoice is year-round and can be done in several ways. To sign up for your free health benefits:

  1. Apply online at MarylandHealthConnection.gov
  2. Download the free Enroll MHC mobile app
  3. Call Maryland Health Connection at 855-642-8572 (TTY: 855-642-8573)
  4. Find free, in-person help at MarylandHealthConnection.gov/help

When your application is verified, you will choose a managed care organization (MCO) to provide your care. If you do not choose, you will be automatically assigned to an MCO.

An MCO is an organization with a network of primary care providers (PCPs), specialists, hospitals and other health care providers. Maryland Physicians Care is an MCO that participates in HealthChoice, Maryland’s Medicaid program.
