It was an idea ahead of its time - only its time never really came. The Maryland Health Care Foundation was formed by the state legislature six years ago to funnel to public good some of the windfall from the for-profit conversions of hospitals and health insurers, notably the giant CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield. Now that the CareFirst deal has been derailed by controversy over executive bonuses, and the sale of hospitals has cooled, the foundation is out of money. Although it launched some valuable programs with $8 million since 1997, lacking new sources of funding on the horizon, the foundation plans to close Oct. 1. As recently as the beginning of this year, the entity stood to collect as much as $1 billion had CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield been sold.

Maybe it's not exactly right to say that Marilyn Maultsby wants to be a billionaire, but she thinks she - and her foundation - would be ready if they got the chance. Maultsby is executive director of the Maryland Health Care Foundation, created by the legislature in 1997 to receive the proceeds if nonprofit health plans or hospitals convert to for-profit status. So far, the foundation has received $500,000 in start-up funds from the state, $1.9 million from the conversion of a small mental-health plan and $1.5 million from the state's tobacco settlement.
