DECEMBER 23 NOW DEADLINE FOR JANUARY 1, 2014 COVERAGE

Mon December 2, 2013


DUPAGE COUNTY- The deadline to enroll in the Health Insurance Marketplace, to ensure your coverage begins January 1, 2014, has been extended December 23 (the original deadline was December 15). 

DuPage County residents can shop for health coverage on the Illinois Health Insurance Marketplace (www.GetCoveredIllinois.gov), run in partnership between the state and the federal governments. Consumers can apply for coverage on the Marketplace either online or by phone.

The Marketplace is a website designed to help residents apply for coverage, compare insurance options, and enroll in healthcare coverage. Families who do not have access to other affordable, quality coverage, such as Medicare, Medicaid, or employer-sponsored insurance, may also be eligible for financial help to reduce the costs of their monthly premiums and medical expenses.

Residents with questions or needing assistance in signing up for healthcare can contact Enroll DuPage. Enroll DuPage is DuPage County's one-stop source for information regarding the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Specially trained navigators are available to answer questions and help residents enroll in coverage. Call 888-724-0077 to schedule an appointment.
