County Health Department Workers Still Waiting For Insurance Marketplace Certification


Sangamon County's public health director says his agency probably won't have its state certification to assist customers in the new health insurance marketplace until next week at the earliest. 

 

At least 10 public health employees have applied for the certification, but were notified by the state over the weekend that it would take at least five business days to receive approval.

 

The marketplace opens Tuesday, but the state is lagging behind in processing paperwork to certify workers.  Meanwhile, a new study suggests 6 in 10 Illinois adults are not aware of the insurance marketplace or that it may be able to offer financial help to pay for a health care policy.
