In-Person Counselor Program
The Health Insurance Marketplace is coming soon
Starting January 1, 2014, Kankakee County residents will be able to get affordable health insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Many residents will be eligible for free and low-cost coverage through Medicaid.
Small business owners (less than 50 employees) can easily apply for health insurance for their employees through the SHOP (Small Business Health Options Program).
Dedicated staff will be available at the Kankakee County Health Department to answer questions and assist you in-person to sign up for health insurance in the Marketplace.
Individuals, families, and small business owners can apply as early as October 1, 2013 by going to the Healthcare.gov website or by calling the In-Person Counselor program at 815-802-9380 or toll free at 1-855-216-9400 for an appointment.
