Maryland Small Group Reform (MSGR) allows for small businesses to seek group health plans. This led to the departure from the association health plan and practices were able to maintain their own health insurance. Our focus moved from the association health plan to expanding direct health insurance offerings through health insurance carrier and third party administrator relationships.
