Your Patients Can Enroll Now for the ACA’s 2021 Health Insurance
Posted on: 11/13/2020

If patients are asking you about Get Covered Illinois, the official Marketplace for Illinois under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), here are some key points to share with them: 

  • The open enrollment period for 2021 started on November 1 and will run through December 15.

  • Currently enrolled patients will be automatically re-enrolled in a similar policy for 2021 if they take no action. However, even if the same insurance company is operating the plan, the details of most plans change from year to year. Patients can ensure they have the best plan for their needs by revisiting ALL plan options for 2021.

  • Even if patients are not switching plans, it is very important that they update their income and household information.

In Illinois, about 892,945 residents have insurance under the ACA – 292,945 through the marketplace and approximately 600,000 through participation in the expanded Medicaid program.
