What is the Healthy Illinois Campaign?

The mission of the Healthy Illinois Campaign is to make quality, affordable health care coverage accessible to all people in Illinois.

Principles

  • Health care is a basic human right.

  • Quality, affordable health care coverage should be accessible for all in Illinois.

  • Increased access to care, timely preventative services and better management of chronic illnesses promote improved health outcomes and reduce costs of late health interventions.

  • Reducing the burden on local governments that are currently paying uninsured health care costs will save Illinois taxpayers.

  • Less uninsured patients seen in hospitals and other medical providers will reduce uncompensated care costs.

  • Providing healthcare for all in Illinois will balance costs and prevent health-related financial crises for individuals and families.
