Patients Who Want ACA Insurance in 2014 Must Act Quickly!
Posted on: 3/21/2014

Just one week remains for the uninsured to enroll in the Illinois Health Insurance Marketplace or the expanded Medicaid program, as required by the Affordable Care Act. The open enrollment period for marketplace insurance closes after March 31 and doesn't start up again until Nov. 15, 2014, for coverage in 2015 - with the exception of "qualifying events," such as job loss, divorce, etc.

As of last month, 113,733 Illinois residents had enrolled in the marketplace and about 200,000 had enrolled in Medicaid.

If your patients do not sign up for health insurance by March 31, 2014, they will be subject to tax penalties. But they also face a more critical issue: the general risk of not having health insurance coverage.

That's why ISMS created this handy flyer for your patients, which includes how they can sign up for coverage.
