Thousands have been signing up for health insurance in the last few days ahead of tomorrow's sign-up deadline. Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, who has been the O'Malley-Brown administration's point man on health-care reform, offered to speak with us about it. Sheilah Kast reached him on his cell phone this morning.
The phone number for the insurance marketplace, the Maryland Health Connection, is (855) 642-8572. The special hotline number that you can use today is (800) 396-1961.
There are more sign-up events scheduled for today, including enrollment assistance at two campuses of Anne Arundel Community College, in Arnold and in Glen Burnie, as well as this afternoon at the 1199 SEIU headquarters on Eutaw Street in Baltimore.
