Ambetter is one of 4 carriers in Illinois for 2020, and one of 3 who is covering Cook & DuPage counties. They are currently only offering Bronze, Silver & Gold plans, which can only be enrolled on the exchange. They also offer plans bundled with optional vision & dental plans.
Ambetter is a good choice for anyone who qualifies for Cost Sharing reductions, as well as for people who are more concerned about their prescription drug coverage (more copays then similar Blue Cross plans) vs gaining access to a wide provider & hospital network.
Note: Silver plans on the exchange may qualify for Cost Sharing Reduction, meaning you may see different deductibles and copayments based on if you qualify based on your income level.
