ENROLL DUPAGE TO HOST EDUCATIONAL GET COVERED ILLINOIS OPEN HOUSE

Mon October 28, 2013

On Saturday, November 2, Enroll DuPage will participate in the "Cover Your Community" day of action. This is a statewide effort to educate Illinois residents about the Affordable Care Act and the health insurance options available to them. This event will be held at the DuPage County Health Department.

October 1st, 2013 marked the opening day for individuals, families and small businesses in Illinois to sign up for quality health coverage through Get Covered Illinois by going to the Official Health Marketplace at:  www.GetCoveredIllinois.gov. From the start, many Americans have had trouble signing onto the site to enroll in affordable health care due to the high volume of people trying to log on. Residents should take this time to educate themselves on what types of coverage are offered, how to get coverage, plan costs and financial help, Medicaid, local resources and more. All of these topics will be covered at the Nov. 2nd open house.

Residents who attend this open house will have an opportunity to sit in on an educational presentation regarding the Affordable Care Act, learn how to get coverage, and have their questions answered by specially trained counselors, called Navigators.
