Eleven health insurance companies are offering a total of 309 health plans in Illinois
November 1, 2022 — Today is the start of Open Enrollment for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Health Insurance Marketplace that runs from November 1, 2022, through January 15, 2023. Once again, Illinoisans will benefit from having an additional month to enroll, just as they did last year.
The Illinois Department of Insurance also released health insurance rates for the 2023 Plan Year, announcing that there are eleven issuers offering ACA Marketplace plans. There were eleven issuers in plan year 2022, eight issuers in plan year 2021, and five in plan year 2020.
“We’re excited to welcome a new health insurance carrier to the ACA Marketplace this year with Aetna Health Inc. offering health plans in Cook, Lake and McHenry counties,” said IDOI Director Dana Popish Severinghaus. “Throughout the entire state, the number of plans increased again this year, and there are now 309 plans. Not every plan is available in every county, but nearly every county has even more plans to choose from than last year. More options and additional time to enroll will allow Illinoisans to make the best possible decisions to find the right health coverage for their family.”
