Passage of House Bill 5142 will enable individuals and families to easily find out if they qualify for low to no-cost health insurance simply by checking a box on their Illinois tax forms.
According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, out of the 890,000 Illinoisans who remain without health insurance, more than 65% already qualify for Medicaid or discounts on the Health Insurance Exchange. These health insurance programs are already in place, however, many Illinoisans don’t know they are eligible. We believe everyone, including those with chronic health conditions, should have access to comprehensive and affordable healthcare coverage.
Please take 30 seconds to send your lawmakers a message thanking them for voting YES on Easy Enrollment.
Again, thank YOU for being an advocate for a healthier Illinois!
