Federal Budget Situation
Notice Regarding Federal Budget Situation
DHMH is working closely with state and federal partners to monitor the federal budget negotiations and determine any potential impacts on DHMH services. Following Congress' failure to pass a Continuing Resolution by midnight on September 30, there is no immediate impact on DHMH services.
The Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) is open for business in Maryland. Medicaid programs will not be impacted, and the Maryland health benefits exchange (Maryland Health Connection) opened on October 1.
If and when additional information is available, it will be posted here. Please check back for updates.
