Welcome to the Lower Shore Health Insurance Assistance Program

Lower Shore Health Insurance Assistance Program is a partner of Maryland Health Connection, the state's official health insurance marketplace. We provide free in-person help for residents of Somerset, Wicomico, and Worcester counties to enroll in private plans or Medicaid/MCHP and receive financial help with insurance costs. Meet with our trained Navigators for in-person assistance.


Call 855-445-5540 to schedule an in-person appointment

Hours: Monday- Friday 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Open Enrollment for 2017 plans through Maryland Health Connection has ended. You can still enroll now if you're eligible for Medicaid/MCHP, or if you've recently had a qualifying life event, such as getting married, having a baby, or losing other health coverage.


You can shop, compare, and enroll online at MarylandHealthConnection.gov or download the free Enroll MHC Mobile app.  Marylanders can also browse plans and get an estimate of financial help, without creating an account. 


We continue to host educational outreach events at businesses, schools, and other community organizations. See our calendar for scheduled outreach events.
