Attacks from the federal government on the Affordable Care Act continue to threaten the health and well-being of Illinoisans.
The federal administration has proposed expanding the availability of short-term health insurance plans. This approach is just the latest attempt to undermine the health insurance markets and popular consumer protections established under the ACA.
SB 2388 SFA 1, the Short-term, Limited Duration Health Insurance Coverage act, protects consumers against these unruly plans by requiring them to be regulated like all other individual insurance plans sold in IL, to clean up questionable marketing practices, and to protect against exclusions for pre-existing conditions.
Please join us in calling elected officials to let them know that we need to pass SB 2388 SFA 1 to protect against short- term plans that put Illinoisans at long-term risk for poor health and massive debt!
