BUSTOS URGES ILLINOISANS TO REVIEW THEIR HEALTH CARE OPTIONS DURING HEALTH EXCHANGE OPEN ENROLLMENT PERIOD

WASHINGTON – Today, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IL-17) urged Illinoisans who receive their coverage through the individual market—or considering doing so—to review their health insurance options during the annual health exchange’s open enrollment period. Open enrollment lasts from November 1st until December 15th. Illinois residents should visit GetCovered.Illinois.Gov to find the coverage that is best for them.

“Over the next six weeks, I encourage Illinoisans to take the opportunity to review their health care options and choose the plan that best fits the needs of them and their families,” Congresswoman Bustos said. “Anyone across our region who is ready to sign up or adjust their plans should visit GetCovered.Illinois.Gov before the December 15th deadline.”

There is free help available if a person has questions about signing up or wants to talk through their options with a trained professional. For assistance, call 1-800-318-2596 or visit https://localhelp.healthcare.gov.
