Collinsville, Ill. – State Rep. Katie Stuart (D-Edwardsville) is highlighting the open enrollment period for residents to shop the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Health Insurance Marketplace. The open enrollment period is now open through Dec. 15 to shop for healthcare coverage.
“The open enrollment period happens each fall and gives individuals an opportunity to either update their current health insurance or to enroll for the first time,” said Stuart. “Many residents have lost jobs and consequently healthcare coverage due to the pandemic. This open enrollment allows for individuals to be sure that they have healthcare coverage for the coming year.”
To help residents get their questions answered and to provide information regarding signing up for healthcare, Stuart is partnering with Get Covered Illinois to host a virtual town hall on Nov. 15th from 6 to 7 p.m. Those interested in participating should email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the Zoom link for the town hall.
“I encourage residents to go to Get Covered Illinois to get the up-to-date information regarding different healthcare plans,” continued Stuart, “I hope to see residents who have questions and concerns attend the town hall to get their questions answered and more information regarding healthcare enrollment.”
