Illinois Health Matters will share events from across the state that are key to the implementation of health care reform in Illinois. Although the Affordable Care Act is a federal law, Illinois state policymakers—including the Governor and the General Assembly—are responsible for implementing many of its provisions. These events are essential to learning about how Illinois individuals, families, small businesses and communities can benefit from and participate in the process.
Please join the Get Covered America team for our Oak Park office opening! Come by and learn more about the work we are doing in your community, and how you can get involved.

This hands-on workshop is designed to support anyone who will be directly involved in managing or implementing campaigns to educate families and children on health insurance options or facilitate enrollment into coverage. This workshop will provide practical strategies that agencies of any size, with any budget (or no budget), can utilize to connect their communities to health coverage, including All Kids, Family Care, and new coverage made available by the Affordable Care Act (also known as federal health reform or Obamacare).
