WHO WE ARE
ACA Consumer Advocacy is an Illinois-based health care advocacy group comprised of health care consumers and citizen advocates with the purpose of educating, motivating, and mobilizing healthcare consumers to actively participate in the process of improving our national healthcare system. We serve as experienced, trusted liaisons to policymakers, government agencies, health policy organizations and others in the healthcare system to promote and work towards achieving equitable, affordable, and comprehensive health care.
Why ACA Consumer Advocacy
We ARE the ACA: ACA Consumer Advocacy is comprised of health care consumers who buy insurance on and off the exchange, with and without subsidies.
We are small business owners, health care providers, and those with pre-existing conditions.
We believe in people to people policy making - consumers must be a part of the lawmaking process.

Open Enrollment for 2021 Health Insurance has begun. Help spread the word. While open enrollment ended for many states on Dec. 15th, it is still going on for many states with their own exchanges.
Over the last 3 years, the current administration has slashed advertising and educational spending for Open Enrollment in ACA plans. It is up to the grassroots to get the word out, especially in light of the current pandemic which has caused untold thousands of Americans to lose their health insurance.

ACA Consumer Advocacy is focused on educating and activating consumers on health policy issues that will move Illinois, as well as the rest of the country, toward a nationwide solution for affordable, universal healthcare coverage.
