Open enrollment begins soon for patients seeking coverage through Get Covered Illinois, the official Marketplace for Illinois under the Affordable Care Act.

As you're bound to get questions from patients about Get Covered Illinois, ISMS offers a FREE patient education flyer on coverage for 2019. Be sure to keep a stack on hand to distribute to your patients or link to from your practice web site or social media accounts.

Key points for patients who are re-enrolling in Get Covered Illinois:   

  • It’s important that patients update their income and household information, even if they are not switching plans.

  • Currently enrolled patients will be automatically re-enrolled in a similar policy for 2019 if they take no action. But they should be warned that even if the same insurance company is operating the plan, the details of most plans change from year to year.

For more details, visit ISMS' Marketplace web page.

If you have questions, call the ISMS Division of Member Advocacy at 800-782-4767 ext. 1470 or send an email
