Ambetter – Illinois Health Plans

Our Rating: Ambetter - Illinois Health Plans 2023

Ambetter Health is changing their plan names for 2023. Members may see a new plan name, but they still have the same great coverage and benefits they’ve come to expect from Ambetter Health. Please refer to the 2023 Plan Name Reference Guide to view the Ambetter Health name changes.

Ambetter is one of 5 carriers in Illinois for 2023, and one of 3 who is covering Cook & DuPage counties. They are currently only offering 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.
