The COVID pandemic has hit low income households especially hard. Nationally, 40% of low income households are reporting loss of income, and many families have lost insurance as a consequence of employment changes. Some families actually qualify for extra help through the ACA, but shelter in place orders, shuttered social service offices and confusing guidelines mean many families don’t understand all of the help available.
In response to current challenges, the DuPage Health Coalition has decided to make it easier for uninsured families who aren’t able to enroll in ACA health plans within the proscribed timeline to get temporary assistance.
For the remainder of 2020, DHC will screen uninsured patients who seek assistance and enroll some low income ACA Marketplace eligible families in temporary Access DuPage coverage, until we can get them connected to other insurance programs like ACA and Silver Access. If you know someone who is uninsured, please encourage them to call to learn more about our programs and services.
