Launch of SHOP Marketplace in Maryland Delayed AGAIN

Nov 12, 2013 -- 7:57am

Small-business owners in Maryland waiting to shop online for healthcare plans via the state-run exchange will have to wait a little longer.

Confirming recent reports, last week the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange announced that its SHOP platform for small businesses now won't launch until April 1, 2014. This is the second delay for Maryland's small-business exchange. The original launch date for the exchange was supposed to be October 1, but that had been delayed until January 1.
