"Follow Your Dreams, Choose Your Health Plan"

Wed November 1, 2017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DUPAGE COUNTY-Open Enrollment is here. This is the time of year to register for health insurance benefits through the HealthCare.gov website, also known as the Health Insurance Marketplace.

The DuPage County Health Department is encouraging residents to, 'Follow Your Dreams, Choose Your Health Plan', and will offer review and renew workshops throughout DuPage County. Specially-trained Community Health Workers will provide information and enrollment assistance.

If you do not have insurance through an employer, Medicare, Medicaid, the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), or a source providing qualifying health insurance, you have from November 1 through December 15, 2017 to enroll in a health insurance plan. Anyone who registered for insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace in the past, must review and renew their current health insurance plan during Open Enrollment.

By law, each health insurance plan must cover, at a minimum, essential health benefits, including hospitalizations, doctor visits, and prescription medicine. Financial assistance is still available to help lower costs of insurance for individuals meeting the income eligibility criteria.

DuPage County residents are asked to call (630) 221-7766 to make an appointment to attend a workshop, or for more information. For the list of workshops, please go to GetDuPageCovered.org.
