CHEVERLY, Md. (AP) -- Sen. Ben Cardin is scheduled to talk about upcoming changes with the implementation of health care reform.

Cardin and officials from Dimensions Healthcare will host health care providers from across Prince George's County on Tuesday.

They will be discussing how people will get insurance through the state's health care exchange.

The Maryland Health Connection is expected to enroll 180,000 of the state's roughly 800,000 uninsured residents through private insurance and another 100,000 more through Medicaid within the first year of enrollment.

Maryland's insurance commissioner has approved rates for individual health plans to be sold through Maryland Health Connection beginning Oct. 1.
