About HealthCare Access Maryland

HealthCare Access Maryland is a 501(c)3 nonprofit agency that plays a critical role in strengthening Maryland’s healthcare delivery system. Working with both government and private-sector support, HCAM helps residents enroll in public health care coverage, navigate the complex healthcare system, and connect to educational and other resources that promote the health and wellness of individuals and communities.
