Health Care

Office of Eligibility and Support Services (OESS)

The Office of Eligibility and Support Services (OESS) serves as the point of entry for Federal, State and County health programs, targeted to residents of Montgomery County who are uninsured and have limited incomes. The OESS offices confirm eligibility for Care for Kids, Maternity Partnership, and Dental Services. Uninsured county residents who are not eligible for medical assistance may qualify for County health programs.

Check current OESS operating status and details.

Private Insurance

The Maryland Insurance Administration (MIA) has encouraged all Life & Health Carriers and Property and Casualty Insurers doing business in the State to make reasonable accommodations so that individuals and businesses do not lose coverage due to non-payment of premium during this emergency.

Reasonable accommodations may include suspension of premiums due, extension of billing due dates and premium grace periods, and waiver of installment and late payment fees.
