No Insurance? No Problem.

If you are a Maryland resident and a U.S. citizen or qualified legal resident, you may be eligible for one of Maryland's medical assistance programs.  You may also qualify for the coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

What's Covered?

All Maryland medical assistance programs cover family planning services, including GYN and breast exams, screening for STDs, and birth control. Coverage for permanent sterilization (for men and women), Gardasil HPV vaccine, and abortion services varies depending on the plan.

Call the Medical Assistance Hotline for more information: 1-800-456-8900.
