AURORA, Ill. – The open enrollment period for residents to shop the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Health Insurance Marketplace is now open through Dec. 15. State Rep. Barbara Hernandez, D-Aurora, is inviting residents with questions about the enrollment period to attend an informational webinar with Congressman Bill Foster, D-IL, on Tuesday, Nov. 30 at 3 p.m. via Facebook Live.

“Health care coverage is available for every resident in Illinois through Get Covered Illinois, the state’s health insurance marketplace,” said Hernandez. “With the open enrollment period now open, it’s important that individuals start planning and reviewing options so they can select the best option for themselves.”
