Illinois Health Insurance Plan

As cities and states across the country observe "Cover the Uninsured Week," Governor Rod R. Blagojevich rallied with more than 1,500 student nurses in Springfield to call on the legislature to pass his historic Illinois Covered plan.

The Governor's proposal would provide access to affordable, comprehensive health insurance to the 1.4 million uninsured adults in Illinois and would help many middle-income families and small businesses that are currently enrolled in health insurance plans save thousands of dollars a year on healthcare costs.
