Well over 300,000 people have lost Medicaid coverage, according to monthly data updates from the Department of Health. And there is still one month left in the Medicaid unwinding period for Maryland.

Among the priorities: Tackling long emergency room wait times, participating in a new federal health care program and adjusting reimbursement rates for care at Md. hospitals.
