On Jan. 31, the Health Insurance Marketplace closes for 2016. Eligible Illinois residents who don’t enroll in a qualified health plan by this date may miss out on coverage for the year as well as face penalties at tax time.
Whether you’re enrolling for the first time or re-enrolling for 2016, Touchette Regional Hospital makes signing up simple! Together with Southern Illinois Healthcare Foundation, Touchette will host a free daylong enrollment event on:
Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016
10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Gateway Center, One Gateway Drive, Collinsville
During the event Health Insurance Navigators will determine if you qualify for low-cost insurance through the Affordable Care Act or for no-cost state-sponsored health coverage. If you do, Navigators will walk you step-by-step through the enrollment process and verify if price breaks or tax credits are available to assist with any costs.
To enroll, please bring a valid photo ID, proof of U.S. citizenship or legal residence, Social Security number, and income verification. The service is free to all Illinois residents.
If you cannot attend on Jan. 31 or would like to enroll prior to the deadline, please call 618-397-3303 to schedule an appointment with your local Navigator.
