ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland officials are reopening a coronavirus special enrollment period for people to enlist in the state’s health insurance exchange.

Officials said Friday that the special enrollment period will run through Dec. 15.

More than 54,000 Maryland residents enrolled for health coverage during an initial special enrollment period that began March 16 and concluded on July 15.
