Medicare in Maryland

Medicare provides those Maryland residents who are age 65 and over and those with certain disabilities and illnesses with health insurance coverage and benefits. The senior population in Maryland is growing as the baby boomer population reaches retirement age. In 2000, 15% of the population was over the age of 65, and this percentage is expected to increase to 25% of Maryland's estimated population of 6.7 million by the year 2030. This rapid growth in the age 65 and over demographic will greatly expand the pool of Medicare-eligible people in the state of Maryland.
