Public Health Update
Affordable Care Act
Starting in October, individuals, families and small business owners have been able to visit www.GetCoveredIllinois.gov , the official health marketplace, to find the health insurance plan that is best for them.
The Marketplace can connect Illinoisans with health insurance plans that cover doctor visits, hospital stays, preventative care, prescriptions and other benefits.
The workshops, which are sponsored by the Illinois Department of Public Health, will provide information about the Marketplace, who qualifies for health coverage under the Marketplace, how the Marketplace makes health insurance affordable, and how people can enroll in health coverage through the Marketplace.
For more information about the workshops, contact the Vermilion County Health Department at 431-2662, ext. 229. ###
