Open enrollment is now in full swing for patients seeking medical insurance coverage for 2020 through Get Covered Illinois, the official Marketplace for Illinois under the Affordable Care Act.

The open enrollment period ends Dec. 15, 2019.

ISMS offers a FREE two-page patient flyer that you can download and hand out to patients, post on your practice website, share via social media, or hang in your exam rooms. 

If you have patients who are re-enrolling in Get Covered Illinois, here are some tips:    

  • Currently enrolled patients will be automatically re-enrolled in a similar policy for 2020 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.

  • Even if your patients are not switching plans, it is very important that they update their income and household information.

For more details, visit ISMS' Marketplace web page.
