The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), in coordination with Get Covered Illinois, recently announced a funding opportunity for organizations seeking to assist Illinois residents in enrolling in coverage options and affordability programs made available through the federal Affordable Care Act (ACA). Grants are targeted to serve populations currently without health insurance and expected to benefit from the ACA’s expansion of the Medicaid program and provision of financial assistance for the purchase of Qualified Health Plans (QHPs) under Get Covered Illinois. In-Person Counselors will be critical to the success of both the education/outreach and enrollment efforts as Illinois works to deliver on the ACA’s promise to ensure secure, stable, and affordable health coverage for all Americans.
