VINCENT DE MARCO - President, Maryland Citizen’s Health Initiative

JOHANNA FABIAN-MARKS - Director of Policy and Plan Management, Maryland Health Benefit Exchange

DR. SONYA J. BRUTON - President and Chief Executive Officer, CCI Health Services

There are the nearly 118,000 adults who are underinsured in Montgomery County. These residents pay out-of-pocket for all health care services or face prohibitive outlays for co-pays and deductibles. Uninsured residents of Montgomery County include low-wage workers, part-time County employees, and small business workers. These residents are disproportionately people of color as well as immigrants and refugees who are ineligible for many government programs aimed at closing the coverage gap. The Montgomery County Council has urged immediate state-level action to fix the problem, but will that work?

We hope to find out in this Trending Topics presentation. A Q&A session will follow the presentations, so gather your thoughts and prepare to engage in the discussion.
