Thousands Of Illinoisans Checking Out New Insurance Options

Posted by wlpo on October 3, 2013

CHICAGO (AP) – Illinois officials say more than 231,000 people have visited the Get Covered Illinois website, many of them looking for information on new options for health insurance.

The Illinois website routes you to a state Medicaid enrollment site or to a federal website depending on household income. The Medicaid side of the system appears to be working, with more than 5,000 applications submitted online.

But problems with the federal website continue to stop many in Illinois and elsewhere from setting up accounts, comparing insurance policies and enrolling for coverage under the nation’s new health care law.
