U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Region V Acting Regional Director and Assistant Surgeon General James Galloway to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the new Affordable Care Act at the Jesus Name Apostolic Church Jesus Name Apostolic Church, 208 Lake Street, Waukegan IL.

Dr. Galloway will be speaking briefly during services to congregation, in addition to addressing Media interviews and a Question and Answer Session.

The event is being co-sponsored by the Campaign for Better Health Care’s Faith Caucus, Jesus Name Apostolic Church, and Family First Center of Lake County.

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama on March 23, 2010, Illinois residents have more freedom and control over their health care choices, according to the Campaign for Better Health Care’s Faith Caucus. The new protections include:

  • 753,000 children in Illinois will no longer be denied a new policy based on a pre-existing condition;
  • 720,000 Illinois residents now have the freedom from worrying about losing their insurance;
  • 140,203 Illinois seniors received relief when they reached the prescription drug coverage gap called the “donut hole;”
  • 50,900 eligible young adults in Illinois are now allowed to stay on their parents’ health insurance plan until their 26th birthday.
