CHICAGO, Ill. (January 13, 2022) – The last day of the Open Enrollment Period for the Affordable Care Act Health Insurance Marketplace is Sunday, January 15. An extra month was added again this year, allowing people more time to purchase health insurance coverage.

Federal enrollment numbers show that 332,460 Illinoisans have selected ACA Marketplace plans since the start of Open Enrollment on November 1, and the total number of Americans who signed up for coverage is nearly 15.9 million.

“This year, the Illinois enrollment numbers for the ACA Health Insurance Marketplace increased by nearly 10,000 compared to last year’s Open Enrollment Period, and we still have a few days left until the deadline,” said IDOI Director Dana Popish Severinghaus. “So, if you need coverage, I encourage you to visit where you can get free enrollment assistance and find out if you may qualify for financial help. We’re here to help guide you through your health coverage journey.”

Get Covered Illinois (GCI), a division of the Illinois Department of Insurance, is the official health marketplace or “exchange” for Illinois consumers to purchase quality, affordable health insurance, facilitated by the federal government through the Affordable Care Act Marketplace.

According to, four in five customers nationwide will be able to find health care coverage for $10 or less per month after the subsidies.
