Call Governor Rauner at 312-471-0261 and Ask Him to SIGN HB 2624                   

The Trump Administration recently finalized a rule allowing the sale of scaled-down health insurance plans aimed at rolling back important consumer protections and harming ACA insurance plans. These so-called short-term health plans are touted as affordable, but they are cheap for a reason: they lock out people with pre-existing conditions, exclude key benefits like prescription drug coverage, and leave those who are able to buy coverage with huge medical bills in the event of a serious illness or injury.

Fortunately, Governor Rauner has the opportunity to stop these plans from harming Illinois residents. A bill sitting on his desk – HB 2624 – limits the sale of short term health plans in Illinois to 180 days in any given year and would eliminate confusion by requiring insurers who sell these plans in Illinois to have clear, plain language on all sales and marketing materials.
