“Today I’m proud to announce the launch of an Obamacare Toolkit, available on my website, to help my constituents learn about the many benefits of Obamacare and how to take advantage of them,” said Rep. Jan Schalowksy. “Much of Obamacare has already taken effect. In my district, 6,600 young adults up to age 26 have been able remain on their parents’ health plan. Up to 36,000 children are protected against preexisting conditions exclusions. More than 8,700 seniors have received discounts worth $13.8 million on their prescription drugs since the passage of Obamacare. Medicare also has new anti-fraud tools that helped Medicare recover over $4 billion last year. 

“Unfortunately there is also a lot of misinformation out there about Obamacare, which is why the Obamacare Tookit is designed to provide information and resources about the healthcare law, the new Illinois Marketplace and answer additional questions.  

“Obamacare is the law of the land and is helping Americans get the health care they need. With the opening of the Obamacare Marketplaces on October 1st, consumers will soon have more options to get access to the health coverage and services that they need.”
