Insurance Fairness History

The Illinois General Assembly works on a two year cycle and in 2019 will be in the first year of their cycle. The 2019 Legislative Session convenes January 9th and will tentatively conclude December 31st. The Illinois General Assembly does not have any deadlines for prefiling or introductions.
Currently, the Democratic Party controls both chambers of the State Legislature and the Office of the Governor.
In order to move forward with other legislative initiatives beyond Insurance Fairness, the Amputee Coalition needs the backing of the limb loss community. We are actively seeking advocates to support or advocacy efforts in Illinois. Connect with the Amputee Coalition or your insurance company through Amplify, your State Representation and the Illinois Department of Insurance to express your concern about issues affecting the limb loss community.
