BALTIMORE, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 02/28/14 -- Maryland Health Connection, the state's health insurance marketplace, is sponsoring a series of free events during March to enroll uninsured Marylanders in quality, affordable health coverage. The health fairs will be held throughout Maryland to inform individuals and families about their health coverage options under the Affordable Care Act and to help them obtain health insurance coverage before the March 31 deadline.
Maryland Health Connection and the regional consumer assistance organizations will have certified representatives and other support staff on hand to answer questions, help attendees enroll, and see if they qualify for either financial assistance that would lower premiums and out-of-pocket costs or for Medicaid. Insurance carriers and authorized brokers will participate in the regional events as well.

- Social Security numbers for all family members enrolling in coverage (or document numbers for any legal immigrants who need insurance)
- Employer and income information (e.g. pay stubs, W-2 forms, or wage and tax statements)

Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
