IlliniCare Health: Individualized Approaches to Illinois Healthcare

IlliniCare Health has a commitment to improving the health of the community one individual at time through affordable and reliable health care plans.

We do this through our focus on the individual, whole health and local involvement. 

Focus on individuals. We believe treating people with kindness, respect and dignity empowers healthy decisions and that healthier individuals create more vibrant families and communities.

Whole health. We believe in treating the whole person, not just the physical body.

Active local involvement. We believe local partnerships enable meaningful, accessible healthcare.

Our Illinois health insurance offerings are founded on this commitment to focus on the individual, helping to make understanding Illinois health care plans easier and more affordable.
