FOR CHA RESIDENTS
CHA supports residents’ access to health information, resources and care. We do this through on-going partnerships with public and private health organizations as well as special initiatives such as access to flu shots in the fall.
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!

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 below.
To become a CHA Health Partner, partners should fill out the form and return to CHA. The application is available below, or by contacting CHA Senior Services at (312) 913-7164.
