COCKEYSVILLE, Md. (June 14, 2011) – TOMORROW, Lt. Governor Anthony G. Brown will give remarks on Maryland’s efforts to implement health care reform at a meeting of the Baltimore Association of Health Underwriters. The Lt. Governor will discuss the opportunities presented by health care reform and highlight the progress being made to establish Maryland’s health benefit exchange.
As Co-Chair of the Maryland Health Care Reform Coordinating Council, Lt. Governor Brown leads the O’Malley-Brown Administration’s efforts to reduce costs, expand access, and improve the quality of health care for all Marylanders. Under the leadership of Governor O’Malley and Lt. Governor Brown, Maryland has implemented reforms that have already expanded health coverage to over 260,000 Marylanders. This year, the Governor signed into law legislation championed by Lt. Governor Brown to establish a framework for Maryland’s health benefit exchange. According to research by the independent Hilltop Institute, implementing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will save Maryland an estimated $850 million and cut the number of Marylanders without health insurance in half by 2020.
