Gov. Pritzker Statement on the House Passage of House Bill 579
SRPINGFIELD — Following the House passage of House Bill 579, Governor JB Pritzker released the following statement:
Today, with the House passage of House Bill 579, we’re one step closer to eliminating unnecessary barriers for residents who are eligible to receive health insurance. Through the adoption of a state-based insurance marketplace, we can expand healthcare access by effectively identifying traditionally underinsured communities, conducting effective outreach to them, and assisting in the enrollment process. As a result, more Illinoisans than ever before will be able to utilize a health insurance plan that works for them and their family. I’m thankful to Majority Leader Robyn Gabel for her leadership on this issue and I look forward to following the bill’s progress in the Senate.
