Last Thursday, January 29th, the Affordable Care Act’s Consortium’s Youth Committee had a press conference at A Safe Haven Foundation. Many young leaders shared their stories and highlighted why it is so important for everyone to enroll, but particularly for the group known as “The Young Invincibles”, individuals between the ages of 18 and 29. The event was covered by Univision, ABC7 Chicago, wttw Chicago and The Chicago Sun-Times.
Additionally, our very own Office Manager, Rocío Kanan, has been featured in the Get Covered Illinois (GCI) Website (see story above). Back in December, the GCI filming crew visited our office to film Rocío’s experience with the Affordable Care Act and the Health Insurance Marketplace. The footage was recently release in the GCI website; we invite everyone to watch and learn of Rocío’s success story: https://getcoveredillinois.gov/success-story/rocio-enrolling-others/
