ACA and the Uninsured in Illinois
Prior to launch of the ACA marketplace in 2014, nearly 1 out of every 7 working age adults in Illinois lacked health insurance. Although the ACA greatly reduced the proportion of Illinois residents living without health insurance, hard-to-reach populations continue to have lower coverage rates.
The Affordable Care Act
About 217,000 people enrolled on the Marketplace in the first open enrollment period, ending April 2014. Enrollment for 2018, the fifth year, was 335,000, down 6%t from the high of the previous year.
Clusters of uninsured remain and, as new data becomes available, we can follow the effects of the changes in access to health insurance.
