Get Covered Illinois has released their Annual Report, detailing the astounding progress made this last year in connecting Illinoisans with new health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act. As one of many organizations who have been an active part of this effort, CBHC is proud to share this impressive report.
What is CBHC doing to help Illinoisans Get Covered?
The Campaign for Better Health Care’s goal is to make people all across Illinois aware of 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 are 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.
