Dozens of Uninsured in Sangamon County Get Help From Health Dept. For Insurance


Sangamon County officials say thousands of county residents are uninsured… but so far, only dozens have approached the county health department about trying to find a policy under the Affordable Care Act.

 

The health department is now meeting with residents who have signed up for one-on-one appointments to navigate the state and federal insurance exchanges.

 

Around 15 people have found coverage… all of them under the state’s expanded Medicaid program.

 

County health director Jim Stone says his staff hasn’t yet had to take the revamped federal healthcare.gov site out for a spin… but he expects that will happen soon, and he hopes the site truly works better than it did in the weeks after it was first launched in October.
