A press conference to call on lawmakers to fund Healthy Illinois for All, to provide a pathway to coverage for all, regardless of immigration status. Healthy Illinois for All would make Illinois the first state in the nation to provide comprehensive, affordable health coverage to approximately 149,000 uninsured low-income immigrants – primarily undocumented adults and Legal Permanent Residents (with that status less than 5 years) in Illinois, ages 19-54, <138% FPL, who are still excluded from the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and federal-Medicaid coverage.

Illinois made history in 2020 becoming the first state in the nation to provide healthcare to immigrants regardless of status beginning at age 65. The 2020 win established a state funded Medicaid-like program for seniors with household incomes of up to 100% FPL ($1,133 per month for an individual). In 2021, IL passed a second expansion to low-income immigrant adults aged 55-64 with household income at or below 138% FPL ($1,563 per month for an individual). This expansion would provide coverage to the remaining uninsured, age 19 through 54.
