The Biden-Harris Administration announced a record-breaking 14.5 million people signed up for 2022 health care coverage through the Marketplaces during the historic Marketplace Open Enrollment Period (OEP) from November 1, 2021 through January 15, 2022 – including 5.8 million people who have newly gained coverage under the Administration. The American Rescue Plan lowered health care costs for most Marketplace consumers and increased enrollment to these records levels: consumers saw their average monthly premium fall by 23%, compared to the 2021 enrollment period that ended before the American Rescue Plan passed. The enrollment numbers are a testament to the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to lowering costs for working families and reaching people where they are through concerted outreach.

Illinois had 323,427 enrollments. This represents the highest level of enrollment since 2018 in which Illinois had 334,979. To view the Marketplace 2022 OEP National Snapshot; visit here.
