Baltimore, Maryland - November 15, 2013: Amber Hill tries and fails to buy health insurance from the Maryland Healthcare Exchange website in her Baltimore apartment November 15, 2013. She tried filling out the application five times and called the Maryland Health Connection help line twice. She was denied because, according to the site, her "household income is about federal limit." The Federal limit is $46,000, whereas her income is $22,500. If her second attempt on Saturday fails, she was advised by the help line supervisor to go into an appeal process -- of which no time frame was given.
