Healthcare in Chicago is first-rate but extremely expensive. All new arrivals should arrange health insurance for themselves and their family, as medical expenses will often need to be paid upfront or be guaranteed by an insurer.
Most newcomers hired by a large company will have insurance through their employer, which usually also covers family members. There are various levels of coverage, including different deductibles and dental and optical coverage, that should be discussed with the employer.
