Health Department Additional Services

The Health Department has several services that stand alone, without a specific category. Below are those programs.


Birth Certificate Services/Death Certificate Services - Information about how to get a birth certificate for yourself or your children.

Medicaid Transport Services - The Medical Assistance Transportation Program provides transportation services to qualifying clients who need medical care and have no transportation.


Refugee and New American Health Assessment & Referral Services - The Howard County Health Department works together with the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) Refugee Health Program to ensure that newly arriving refugees, asylees, parolees, and other immigrants receive a thorough health screening with appropriate follow-up care, and needed referrals.
