Remind Patients: Open Enrollment Ends December 15 for ACA Medical Insurance
Posted on: 11/30/2018

Open enrollment will end in about a week for patients seeking medical insurance coverage for 2019 through Get Covered Illinois, the official Marketplace for Illinois under the Affordable Care Act.

ISMS offers a FREE patient education flyer that you can download and hand out to patients, post on your practice website, share via social media, or hang in your exam rooms. 

If you have patients who are re-enrolling in Get Covered Illinois, here are some tips:    

  • It's important that patients update their income and household information, even if they are not switching plans.

  • Currently enrolled patients will be automatically re-enrolled in a similar policy for 2019 if they take no action. But they should be warned that even if the same insurance company is operating the plan, the details of most plans change from year to year.

For more details, visit ISMS' Marketplace web page.

If you have questions, call the ISMS Division of Member Advocacy at 800-782-4767 ext. 1470 or send an email
