Illinois State Insurance Exchange
Exchange:
The Illinois Insurance Exchange (Marketplace) is called Get Covered Illinois. 
The Illinois Health Insurance Exchanges is a Partnership Marketplace jointly administered by the State and federal government, under the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
 
General information about the Illinois Health Insurance Exchanges can be found at: http://www2.illinois.gov/gov/healthcarereform/Pages/default.aspx.
Learn more: Background
 
Patients:

The Illinois Health Insurance Exchanges is essentially a marketplace for individuals to shop for health insurance if they do not already have insurance coverage from another source. If individuals have insurance from another source such as employment, retirement benefits, or spousal benefits, they do not need to obtain it from the Marketplace.
 
 
 
The AIDS Foundation of Chicago published two guides analyzing plans in the Illinois Exchange for HIV patients:
 
HIV Providers:
 
Providers must contract with each of the Qualified Health Plans offered in the marketplace individually to participate fully in the Illinois Health Insurance Exchanges.
 
This process is similar to enrolling in insurance or managed care organization provider networks. See below the list of insurers participating in the Illinois Health Insurance Exchanges, and information about contacting them.
 
As an HIV provider, you may qualify for designation as an “Essential Community Provider (ECP).” The Qualified Health Plans participating in the Insurance Exchange (Marketplace) are required to contract with a minimum number of ECPs and Specialists to ensure network adequacy.
 
Visit our Provider Resources Section for more specific instructions to assist you in contacting health plans.
