The Affordable Care Act is a law that requires all United States citizens and legal residents to have health insurance.

Most people in Illinois can get health insurance from the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace or from the Illinois Medicaid Program. The marketplace has many kinds of health care plans for you and your family to choose. All plans cover prescriptions, hospital stays, doctor visits, preventive care (services that keep you healthy like shots and screening tests) and more.

Being sick cannot keep you from getting insurance. You cannot be turned down or charged more for health insurance because you have a serious illness or disease (pre-existing condition).
