Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or "Obamacare", health insurance is available and more affordable for everyone, especially to those with the lowest incomes since it helps subsidize costs. Some of the ways you can obtain health insurance coverage is through the Illinois exchange, through an employer's plan, public programs like Medicaid and CHIP, directly from a private insurance provider, or through health insurance marketplaces like GoHealth. We partner with over 300+ private insurers to help Illinois residents compare plans and benefits, and get better health insurance at the lowest cost.

Illinois residents have access to several health insurance options. Whether you work for an employer that doesn’t offer health coverage or you work for yourself, you’ll be able to choose from several Illinois health insurance plans.

Going without health coverage is a risky move. It could impact both your health and your financial wellbeing if you become hospitalized. You don’t need to take the risk with so many health coverage options in Illinois.
