Thanks to everyone who helped out with our 2014 Summer Celebration! Whether you were a Sponsor, a member of our Host Committee, or one of the over one hundred attendees, this great event would not have been possible without your support.
We also want to express our deep gratitude for the members of the CBHC Board of Directors, many of whom shared moving reflections on the departure of our Executive Director Jim Duffett. Additional thanks go to our hosts at Reza’s Restaurant, who always make us feel so welcome.
And a special thanks to our interns and volunteers who did such hard work checking in guests, taking photos, and providing assistance with sound and lighting.
Get Covered Illinois is the starting point for Illinois residents who want information about their eligibility, coverage options, and where to get help with applications.
As a recipient of the state grant to educate the public and enroll people through Get Covered Illinois, the Campaign for Better Health Care is scheduling public presentations and enrollment events across Illinois. Our trained and certified In-Person Counselors (aka “Navigators”) will provide detailed information about the new marketplace website, how to use it, and what the advantages will be for Illinoisans.
To contact us about educational events in your area or with questions about enrollment, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Campaign for Better Health Care’s goal is to have people from across Illinois aware of and involved in enrollment in the new Health Insurance Marketplace under the Affordable Care Act.
Under an In-Person Counselor (IPC) grant from the State of Illinois, we are reaching out to special populations to make sure they are informed about the Marketplace. We’ve hired a Spanish-speaking IPC, as well as conducting outreach with the small business community with a focus on African American and Latino/a businesses and employees. Additionally, we are partnering with people from a wide variety of faith communities to promote awareness of the ACA with those populations.
Our In-Person Counselors (aka “Navigators”) are available to answer questions about enrollment and the Marketplace, especially for those who otherwise would not have access to this information. If you are interested in learning more about health equity and the Affordable Care Act, check out Families USA’s website. If you would like to read more about the Marketplace and the options available to you, your family, and/or your small business, check out getcoveredillinois.gov.
