Those interested in enrolling at UI Health during this time will be seen on a first-come, first-served, walk-in basis.
Certified application counselors can answer questions about insurance options, assist with navigating health insurance websites, and help with enrollment forms free of charge.

March 31 is the deadline to enroll in health insurance through the Affordable Care Act, which offers affordable options for coverage and financial assistance for those who qualify. Under the ACA, Americans who don't sign up for health insurance by the March 31 deadline will pay a penalty on their 2014 income taxes.
Media interested in speaking with a patient or certified application counselor should call Sharon Parmet at (773) 519-0404 before visiting UI Hospital.
