AFFORDABLE CARE ACT – HEALTH COVERAGE FOR ALL
How can the Affordable Care Act (“Obama-care”) help me?
Now, everyone is required to have health insurance. It’s the law! Affordable options are available through Medicaid, Medicare (for those 65+ or with a disability) or through private plans on the Health Insurance Marketplace. Many preventive care services are now available at no cost as part of a health insurance plan. For information and accessing health insurance coverage:

FOR HEALTH PROFESSIONALS AND ORGANIZATIONS
CHA HEALTH PARTNERSHIPS
Launched in 2016, the CHA Health Partnership application is now available online. Any health-related organization requesting to meet with residents in a common area of a CHA building must first complete a partnership application for CHA review/approval. Approved Health Partners provide free health and wellness information and resources to CHA residents. This is a voluntary partnership agreement with no funds provided by CHA.
For more information on CHA’s Health Partnership Application Protocol click here. To become a CHA Health Partner, partners should fill out the form and return to CHA. The application is available here, or by contacting CHA Senior Services at (312) 913-7164. For a complete list of CHA health Partners/services click here.
