    ...the FEDERALLY-run states???

    According to it is:

    Health Insurance Marketplace in Illinois

    If you live in Illinois, you'll use this website,, to apply for coverage, compare plans, and enroll. Here’s what you need to know before you apply. You can also see if you qualify for lower costs and preview plans and prices. You’ll find out final costs and savings on Marketplace plans based on your specific situation when you apply.

    Is this yet another fuck-up on the part of, or did the state-run site just not launch for the first couple of weeks???

      private insurance plans through federal exchange and medicaid (Application for Benefits Eligibility) through the state website.

      State officials are encouraged with the significant number of Illinoisans who have used the simple screening tool.  This user-friendly tool, found on the “How to Get Covered” tab of the home page, determines whether individuals are eligible for either private insurance in the Marketplace, or State Medicaid.  Medicaid has been expanded recently residents.  More than 100, 000 people have answered the six household questions and then been routed either to “ABE”, the State’s rebranded Medicaid page (Application for Benefits Eligibility) or to the Federal Marketplace ( where they can shop among multiple options for private insurance.

      Eventually, in future years I'm guessing Illinois will take over running the exchanges.
