CHICAGO, Ill. (December 9, 2019) – Highlighting the coming deadline to enroll in health insurance for next year under the Affordable Care Act, Get Covered Illinois began airing TV and radio ads in Chicago and Springfield to remind consumers that open enrollment ends December 15, 2019. The TV ads will run in the Chicago and Springfield markets, while radio ads will run in those markets and Carbondale through December 15:
After December 15, consumers can no longer purchase insurance coverage on the marketplace unless they have a qualifying life event, such as getting married, becoming a new parent, or losing healthcare coverage.
The $300,000 paid media campaign also highlights coverage plans for mental health and substance use disorder treatment.
IDOI Director Robert Muriel said, “We realize that people are busy this holiday season, but if you need health insurance, shopping for the right plan should be on your list of things to do.”
Get Covered Illinois (GCI), is the official health insurance marketplace or “exchange” where Illinois consumers can purchase health insurance coverage and apply for subsidies and rebates from the federal government to help lower their monthly premium costs.
Go to the Get Covered Illinois (GCI) website to find the right health plan and get free assistance from a certified application counselor to help you through the process.
