The Affordable Care Act (ACA): A Reflection on Immigrant Access in Illinois provides awareness of enrollment issues immigrants and refugees faced in the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace (also referred to as the Marketplace) during the first “open enrollment.” Its focus is on lessons learned through the first year of the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights’ (ICIRR) In-Person Counselor program. In July 2013, as part of the In-Person Counselor Program (IPC), the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) awarded ICIRR $1.25 million to provide outreach and enrollment in the Marketplace and Adult Medicaid for immigrant and refugeefamilies. ICIRR created a network of 29 ethnic community- based organizations across Illinois dedicated to enrolling eligible uninsured immigrants and refugees.

ICIRR is dedicated to promoting the rights of immigrants and refugees to full and equal participation in the civic, cultural, social, and political life of our diverse society.
