Require all residents to have health insurance

In the state of Maryland where there is Medicare, Medicaid and employer coverage (Prince George’s unemployment rate of 4.5 percent), we should not have a massive problem with uninsured patients. A solution to the health care crisis in Prince George’s County and elsewhere in Maryland is to require all residents of Maryland to have health care insurance.

Currently Maine, Massachusetts and California have passed legislation to require residents to have health insurance through state sponsored health plans or employment plans. This will bring the populace closer to universal health care coverage.

Benefits of this plan are that Marylanders will have coverage, and hospitals will receive payment through the plans.
