Federal Court Rulings Do Not Change Current Premium Tax Credits in Illinois

Statement from Jennifer Koehler, Executive Director of Get Covered Illinois:

“Through Get Covered Illinois, the state of Illinois has carried out a successful launch of the Affordable Care Act, delivering health coverage to more than half a million people in the initial six-month enrollment period. This health coverage is making a real, positive impact on people’s lives and well-being. We are monitoring today’s appeals court decisions in which two courts have rendered differing rulings. The bottom line for now is that nothing has changed and the subsidies created under the law to help people cover the cost of their health care remain in effect. Get Covered Illinois is focused on preparing for the enrollment period for year two that will start this fall.”
