Chicago, IL - State Rep. Sara Feigenholtz, D-Chicago, will help residents sign up for the new health insurance exchanges at an information session on Thursday, Oct. 17.

The event is slated to run from 6-8 p.m. at the 19th District Police Station Community Room located at 850 W. Addison in Chicago.

"With the skyrocketing costs of health care, insurance has become more necessary than ever," Feigenholtz said. "That is why it is important for the uninsured to take advantage of this new health insurance option and enroll in the new health insurance exchange. I encourage anyone who has individual concerns or needs assistance enrolling to come by and learn more about how the Affordable Care Act can help them."

Feigenholtz was chief sponsor of Senate Bill 26, which allows Illinois to begin implementing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and operate health insurance exchanges. Residents can begin enrolling in the health insurance exchanges on Oct. 1.

For more information on this or other upcoming events, please contact Feigenholtz's constituent service office at 773-296-4141 or sara@staterepsara.com.
