Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois to Participate in Health Insurance Marketplace in 2017

Sep. 29, 2016

For 80 years, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) has been committed to providing access to quality, cost-effective coverage to as many people as possible through employer group plans, government programs and individual policies. BCBSIL has worked closely with state and federal regulators to finalize our participation on the 2017 individual marketplace and are pleased to continue offer Illinoisans products both on and off the exchange in every county throughout the state in 2017. Specific 2017 plan, network and benefit information will be available closer to the open enrollment period that begins on Nov. 1, 2016. We will continue to work with state and federal regulators and legislators to ensure a stable and sustainable insurance marketplace and to improve the quality and cost of care for all of our members.
