Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno has appointed me to serve as co-chairman, of the Illinois Health Benefits Exchange Legislative Study Committee.

Created by Senate Bill 1555 (PA 97-0142), the Committee will study implementation and establishment of the Illinois Health Benefits Exchange.

Signed into law July 14, Senate Bill 1555 establishes the “Illinois Health Benefits Exchange” for individuals and employers with up to 50 employees to shop for, select, and enroll in private insurance plans. Individuals and small employers will be in separate pools.

The new law also authorizes the Department of Insurance and COGFA to apply for and use federal grant dollars available to the states in order to assist in exchange implementation.
