IDOI Releases Final Numbers Showing 32,000 More Illinoisans Signed Up During the 2022 Open Enrollment Period on the ACA Health Insurance Marketplace Compared to Last Year

​February 1, 2022

Final federal numbers show that a total of 323,427 Illinoisans selected health plans on the ACA (Affordable Care Act) Health Insurance Marketplace during the Open Enrollment Period and 12,938 selected their plans during the last month of enrollment.  IDOI Acting Director Dana Popish Severinghaus said Illinoisans were also encouraged by the reduced health insurance premiums available under the American Rescue Plan. “Our ad campaign and outreach promoted the benefits of buying quality health insurance on the ACA Marketplace, made even more affordable with the ARP,” said Popish Severinghaus. “We worked hard to get the word out about the extended deadline and the additional tax credits for qualifying consumers who bought health plans directly through the ACA Marketplace.”
