Still No Solid Numbers in Local ACA Signups


There’s no clear indication yet of how many Sangamon County residents have been able to obtain health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

 

County public health director Jim Stone says the health department helped just over 600 people sign up.

 

Most of them qualified for the state’s expanded Medicaid program, but around 200 signed up for private policies in the health insurance exchanges.

 

But Stone says those numbers don’t include other local agencies who helped county residents sign up… or people who simply went to the website on their own and obtained a policy.
