CBHC is a consumer advocacy group that has been fighting for consumer protections and quality, affordable health care for all for almost 25 years here in Illinois. For the next 6 months, Jillian and many others will be working tirelessly as In-Person Counselors to assist individuals, families and small employers in the process of learning about, choosing and enrolling in new health coverage options through the Affordable Care Act. She has a straightforward, candid presentation style. Her number one priority is to share accurate, non-biased, helpful information about the health care reform law with families and small businesses.
