Open Enrollment Starts November 15th for Get Covered Illinois

Posted by Admin On November - 12 - 2014
Are you covered? Do you know someone that is uninsured?

Open enrollment for Get Covered Illinois (GCI), the official health insurance marketplace for Illinois, begins on November 15, 2014.  Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, in less than a week, you will be able to secure quality health insurance for yourself and your loved ones.  You may even qualify for a subsidy to help you pay for the premium, if any.

Last year the Illinois African American Coalition for Prevention (ILAACP) enrolled over 300 into health insurance plans through Get Covered Illinois.  By doing so, we ensured that people would be covered when they are most vulnerable – when they are sick.  We also positioned them to take advantage of the free preventive care services that each health insurance plan must now cover. We still have a lot of work to do, and again we’ve teamed up with Get Covered Illinois and United Way of Metropolitan Chicago to provide enrollment opportunities for African Americans. Our In-Person Counselors (IPCs) will be servicing residents of Chicago’s Auburn Gresham, South Shore, Woodlawn, Greater Grand Crossing and Chatham neighborhoods. Health care is an integral part of our goal to build safe, healthy and resilient African- American children, families, and communities.

Please stay tuned for updates on where our IPCs will be and feel free to share our information with those looking to enroll during open enrollment. To learn more about our IPC services feel free to contact Valerie Hill, IPC Coordinator, at 312.850.4444 ext. 258 or vhill@ilaacp.org.

Get covered. Stay covered. Stay healthy.

In service,

Malik S. Nevels, J.D.
Executive Director
