More than 740,000 people in Maryland have no health insurance. Many cannot get the care they need for urgent or chronic health problems because they cannot afford it.

The Maryland Health Insurance Plan
The Maryland Health Insurance Plan (MHIP) is state-administered health insurance that makes coverage available to residents who do not otherwise have access to health insurance.
Holy Cross Hospital embraces this alternative to traditional insurance. Our financial counselors identify patients who may be eligible and work with them toward enrollment.
