Health insurance counselors to visit La Salle and Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on February 6, 2015

Having health insurance is the law. If you aren’t covered through an employer, you can buy coverage through the state’s health insurance Marketplace, but the last day to do that is fast approaching.

Carol West is the Regional Outreach Coordinator with Get Covered Illinois. Representatives from Get Covered Illinois will be in La Salle and Ottawa Saturday.  West says if you’re confused about what you need, they can help.

West says the Marketplace offers many different plans with varied premiums and deductibles. And she says you would be buying policies through commonly known insurance companies

You can meet with counselors in La Salle from 9:30am -1:30pm Saturday at the Flamingo Banquet Center on Second Street. In Ottawa, you can meet with counselors from 2-6pm at the First Congregational United Church of Christ on East Jackson Street.

The deadline to sign up for health insurance is February 15.

Learn more about it by listening to an interview that’s available at the Classic Hits 103.9 WLPO news page.
