There's help for people in Maryland who need health insurance. The state is announcing the launch of a program to help residents get health insurance under the federal health care law.

About $24 million in state and federal grants will be used to fund six organizations. They will provide consumer assistance and enrollment resources throughout Maryland.

Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown says the initiative will create more than 300 jobs.

A regional approach is being taken to provide in-person assistance as the new health insurance coverage options become available in October. Each organization will help consumers learn about and apply for an appropriate health insurance product, including Medicaid, the Maryland Children's Health Program and subsidized and non-subsidized qualified health plans.
