Now, a look at how Marylanders are trying to make sure they have health insurance.  Open Enrollment through the Maryland Health Connection began on the first of November.  In previous years, the enrollment period has lasted 3 months.  This year, the enrollment period is only half that long.  It ends next month, on December 15th. 

With about a month to go, we thought it would be a good idea to check-in on how enrollment is going so far.  Tom's guest in Studio A is Dr. Howard Haft.  He’s the Interim Executive Director of the Maryland Health Benefits Exchange, which runs Maryland Health Connection.Gov, the website where people shop and sign-up for health and dental plans.
