ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland's House of Delegates will likely vote Tuesday on a plan to help residents who have struggled with the state's health insurance exchange online.

The bill would let customers sign up for retroactive coverage in the Maryland Health Insurance Plan, a separate safety net plan. 

Private insurance companies in the health exchange opened similar retroactive coverage options, but a deadline to register was last week.

The Senate approved the bill Jan. 21.
