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.
Having trouble with your benefits?
We may be able to help direct you to the resources you need.
Let us know what your issue is, and what state you are in, and will do our best to find someone to help you.
Have you been charged upfront for medical services even with health insurance?
Have you experienced a demand for upfront payment of your deductible prior to receiving medical care or testing, even with health insurance? We are collecting stories of these experiences to see about changing this increasingly common practice. If you would like to share your experience, please click the Contact ACA Consumer Advocacy button and be sure to let us know if we may share your contact information with elected officials.
We have once again partnered with the ACA Signup project to spread the word about open enrollment for 2019. Due to significant slashes to funding for ACA navigators and educational outreach by the administration, it is more important than ever for everyone to spread the word and help #GetAmericaCovered. During the 2018 Open Enrollment period, the ACA Signup Project reached an estimated 100 million people on social media.

We believe that social media is a powerful tool for modern advocacy. Healthcare advocates and activists have carved out a significant niche on Facebook and Twitter, and have created relationships with other activist organizations. Join us on Facebook and Twitter and join in the conversation.
