1.    Not only can you view and compare health insurance options online, but with one simple application, you can have those options tailored to your personal situation and find out if you might be eligible, based on your income, for financial assistance to lower your costs.

2.    The same application will let you find out if you and your family members might qualify for free or low-cost coverage available through Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

3.    The information is all available online, but you can apply 4 ways: online, by phone, by mail, or in-person. The Will County Community Health Center has trained Outreach staff to assist you in deciding on the best health insurance enrollment options.

4.    Each health plan will generally offer comprehensive coverage, including a core set of essential health benefits like doctor visits, preventive care, maternity care, hospitalization, prescription drugs, and more.

5.    Illinois consumers can shop for coverage on the Illinois Health Insurance Marketplace.  It offers plans from private companies where you’ll be able to compare your health coverage options based on price, benefits, quality, and other features important to you before you make a choice.

6.    Health insurance companies selling plans through the Marketplace cannot deny you coverage or charge you more due to pre-existing health conditions, and they can’t charge women and men different premiums based on their gender.

7.    The Illinois Health Insurance Marketplace is a partnership between the state and federal governments. Marketplaces in each state will give you the same access to all of your Marketplace coverage options.
