Maryland lawmakers are working to help make health insurance more affordable. 

Legislators met Wednesday to discuss several proposals including offering insurers reinsurance to protect them from high claims. One sponsor of the bill says it would act as a band-aid and would allow the state to try and get waivers for a long-term solution. 

Officials say funding should come from the tax money health insurance companies don't have to pay due to the tax overhaul.
