AIDS Legal Council of Chicago, Illinois Department of Public Health Get Free Hotline Going for People With HIV/AIDS

February 8, 2008

A new toll-free hotline is now available to provide public benefits counsel to HIV-positive Illinois residents and their case workers. The number connects callers to AIDS Legal Council of Chicago staff members who can answer questions on topics including public and private health care options, accessing benefits, and getting medication through Medicare. ALCC launched the site in conjunction with the Illinois Department of Public Health. "Our new toll-free number fills a critical gap in our health care system," said Ann Hilton Fisher, ALCC's executive director. "Illinois has worked hard to create a safety net for people with HIV, but the complexities of qualifying for the various programs can be daunting for many." The hotline -- 866-506-3038 -- is available weekdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
