Apply for Medicaid
With the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as the “ACA,” low-income men and women aged 19-64 without custodial children can now qualify for free medical insurance through Medicaid. In the past, only moms and their children, seniors, and persons with disabilities qualified. If you are interested in taking advantage of this new opportunity, there are several ways to apply. You can apply online at https://abe.illinois.gov, by phone at 1-800-843-6154, or in person at your local DHS office, or with the help of a navigator in your community.
