Affordable Health Care Coverage

The Health Insurance Marketplace Open Enrollment is over, but you can still get 2015 health coverage if you qualify for a special enrollment for certain life changes such as getting married, having a baby, losing other coverage, or moving.

If you don’t have coverage for the remainder of 2015 you’ll risk having to pay the fee next year for the portion of this year that you don’t have coverage. The fee for people who don’t have coverage increased in 2015 to $325 per person or 2% of your household income – whichever is higher.

Open enrollment for 2016 starts November 15th. Coverage can start as early as January 1, 2016.  If you don't enroll in a 2016 health insurance plan by January 31, 2016, you cannot enroll in a health insurance plan for 2015 unless you qualify for a special enrollment period.  If you currently get coverage through a Health Insurance Marketplace plan, come in during open enrollment to see your 2016 plan options.

Please call the Office of Community Health at 630-483-5665 to schedule your appointment with one of our Certified Application Counselors.

You could save: 8 out of 10 people who enroll in 2015 coverage are getting financial help. Millions have already signed up.
