An Initiative of Smart Policy Works

Planning for Open Enrollment Round 2

Prior to implementation of the ACA in 2014, nearly 1 out of every 7 working age adults in Illinois lacked health insurance despite the fact that the majority of them are working full time. This presentation on IHM's Data Matters dispels the myth that working more than part-time means you automatically have a path to health coverage. The fact is that many employers – particularly smaller businesses – have never before been in a position to provide it. The ACA now creates options and opportunities for all businesses and individuals, unlocking the door for opportunity to attract new talent and remain competitive in a challenging marketplace.
