As of April 1, 2014, open enrollment for the federal Marketplace insurance exchange has closed. Insurance through the Marketplace will be available again during the next open enrollment period starting on November 15, 2014 and going through February 15, 2015. As with most things there are some exceptions, such as certain life events, ie: marriage, birth, job/insurance loss, etc.that could create a special enrollment period. The Marketplace is a website that will help you apply for coverage, compare insurance options, and enroll in health coverage.
Unlike the Marketplace, Medicaid is always open enrollment. For more information, visit www.getcoveredillinois.gov or call the Marshall County Health Department and ask to speak with Susan @ 309-246-8074.
