BALTIMORE (AP) - Maryland health officials are blaming a programming error for causing some Medicaid enrollment packages to be sent to the wrong address.

The state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene attributed the error Sunday to Noridian, the prime contractor for the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange.

Health officials say the error, which was discovered Friday, affected up to 383 households with 1,078 individuals. The department says that’s a small percentage of the number of Marylanders enrolled in Medicaid to date.

The enrollment package includes information such as name, date of birth and Medicaid ID number, but it does not contain financial or medical information.

The department plans to contact everyone who’s been affected by the mistake and will send out the correct enrollment packages this week.
