Maryland Children's Health Insurance / Medicaid Program Update

The Maryland Department of Health recently experienced a network security event that is currently impacting our systems.

Please know that the health of you and your family is important to us and we remain committed to assisting you as best we can despite our current limitations. For general questions regarding medical assistance, please call us at 301-609-6890.
