Annual Report to Governor & General Assembly due Dec. 31 (Chapter 17, Acts of 2017).

In June 2017, the Maryland Health Insurance Coverage Protection Commission was authorized (Chapter 17, Acts of 2017).

Changes and potential changes to the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the Maryland Children's Health Program, Medicaid, Medicare, and the Maryland All-Payer Model will be monitored by the Commission. The impact of such changes will be assessed by the Commission, and recommendations made on how to ensure access to affordable health coverage for Maryland residents.

The Commission will undertake a study to include an assessment of the adverse effects on State residents, public health, and the economy resulting from the loss of health coverage through changes to the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Further, the study will estimate the costs to Maryland and its residents, and examine measures to prevent or mitigate the adverse effects associated with changes to the Act, the Maryland Children's Health Program, Medicaid, Medicare, and the Maryland All-Payer Model.

Authorization for the Commission ends June 30, 2020.
