Get Covered Illinois Urges Illinoisans Who Are Not Covered to Take Action

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Health

With just a few days left to sign up for coverage through the Illinois Health Insurance Marketplace, Get Covered Illinois (GCI) urged Illinois’ uninsured residents to take action now to enroll in a health plan under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Uninsured residents who do not sign up by March 31 will not be able to benefit from a Marketplace plan that might include financial help until January 2015, a nine-month wait and a huge missed opportunity.

GCI also announced the Get Covered Illinois Help Desk (866-311-1119) will be offering extended hours from 7am to 10pm through March 28th and from 7:00 am until midnight from March 29-31. In addition many GCI grantee organizations are offering extended hours over the next days in order to meet the demand for in-person assistance from certified navigators. Go to to find organizations in your area and call ahead to find out hours of operation and to make an appointment for enrollment assistance.
