Southern Seven Health Department will be hosting an informational workshop on “Get Covered Illinois” (the official Health Insurance Marketplace) at the Vienna Carnegie Library Wednesday, Dec. 11, from 1-3 p.m.
The Marketplace will connect Illinoisans with plans that cover important benefits like doctor visits, hospital stays, prescriptions and more, as well as preventive care at no cost. Most people will get help paying for their health plan, and many may be eligible for low-cost or free coverage.
If you enroll in a plan by December 23, 2013 coverage will kick in on January 1, 2014.
Come and learn more about:
• What the Marketplace is and how it applies to you.
• Who qualifies for health coverage under the Marketplace.
• How does the Marketplace make health insurance affordable.
• How to enroll in new health coverage through the Marketplace.
The target group for this event is uninsured Illinois residents. If you are currently covered by some sort of health insurance, (i.e. private insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, etc…), and plan on staying with that coverage, you do not have to do anything.
