Get DuPage Covered

The Health Department's Get Covered program is focused on providing information and free assistance to those seeking health coverage through the Individual Health Insurance Marketplace (HealthCare.gov). Illinois residents may qualify for financial assistance to help pay for the cost of their health insurance plan during Open Enrollment (November 1st to December 15th). Open enrollment is the only time you can access a health plan on HealthCare.gov without qualifying for a special enrollment.

Get Covered coordinates and offers free in-person assistance to people who want to learn more about their options to enroll. If you would like to schedule an appointment for in-person assistance, please call 630-221-7606.
