SPRINGFIELD - State leaders have revealed more about the new health insurance marketplace that's set to open October first. They've given the site an official name. It's called Get Covered Illinois. It's a website you can access to compare plans side by side, kind of like an expedia or hotels dot com. Starting next week, people will be able to log on to the site to shop for health insurance. It will have plans from 8 different insurance companies with different ranges of coverage options. Starting January first...everyone must have health insurance. If not, they'll face a penalty from the I-R-S. State officials expect at least 300-thousand people will sign up for coverage using new options available through the A-C-A. The "Get Covered Illinois," brand and logo are part of a multimillion-dollar ad campaign running through the fall and winter
