Watching through the 1st Season of Voyager, has anyone heard an explanation on why the Maquis have a different rank insignia?  Does that ever go away later in the series and they are fully commissioned as Starfleet officers?

They have provisional ranks because they're not actually Starfleet officers. Many of them either dropped out or didn't even go to the academy in the first place

Because the Maquis seperated from the Federation they use their own rank insignia to distinguish themselves from the Feds. As willowtree stated, some were kicked out, some dropped out but retained their "unofficial" rank:

I don't think it was to distinguish themselves. It wasn't just a maquis thing. Anyone who didn't have an official starfleet rank would technically be wearing those bars instead of pips. The bars are provisional ranks, not maquis ranks
