BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. – During a recent special legislative session, state Rep. Daniel Didech, D-Buffalo Grove, backed legislation taking steps to make health care more affordable.
“The COVID-19 outbreak is demonstrating the appalling consequences of an inaccessible health care system,” said Didech. “Lowering the cost of health care is a crucial step we can take to help contain the spread of this pandemic and protect the well-being of all Illinoisans.”
Working to expand access to health care, Didech recently supported Senate Bill 1864, which strives to research alternative options to make health insurance more affordable in Illinois. This measure would create the Health Care Affordability Act, which would direct state agencies charged with regulating insurance and health care to conduct a feasibility study and make recommendations for ways to make health care more affordable. The findings from this study will be reported to the General Assembly and the governor to help craft effective policy solutions. The legislation passed the House and Senate with bipartisan support.

“No family should be forced to choose between a visit to the doctor and having a place to live or putting food on the table,” Didech said. “In order to build a stronger and more equitable Illinois, I am committed to fighting for a more accessible health care system.”
