Illinois Health Insurance Marketplace Deadline Approaches
Time is running out for people to enroll for health coverage through the Illinois Health Insurance Marketplace! Open enrollment closes February 15th. After that date, the only way people will be able to get coverage is if they qualify for a special enrollment period due to a qualifying life event. Most Illinois residents who apply through the Marketplace qualify for financial assistance by way of federal subsidies. Enroll Lake County! navigators are available days, evenings, and weekends now through February 15th to help people explore their options and apply for coverage.

Medicaid enrollment is year-round so navigators will still be able to assist with Medicaid applications once the Marketplace closes, but now is the time to meet with a navigator if you need help applying for coverage through the Marketplace. By law, most people must have health coverage or they will be fined. To schedule an appointment, emailEnroll@LakeCountyIl.gov or call 847-377-4999 today!

Solar Project Now Complete
Highland Middle School and Butterfield Elementary School are now being powered, in part, by solar energy. (Butterfield School pictured here.)

The $3.2 million solar panel installation project was completed this month, thanks to a private grant of $1.8 million from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation. The project makes Libertyville School District 70 the largest solar-run school districts in the state, possibly the midwest.

Both schools can tap into the solar readings of the panels, with plans to use them in the near future for classes when students study energy and for science projects.
