If you’re a Illinois resident, you can use the LinkedIn Card to access all of your state’s services including health care, libraries, parks, and more.
Illinois Link Card is the state’s health insurance exchange and allows residents to get health insurance coverage through their employers or their employer-sponsored health insurance.
The Link card can also be used to pay for public transit, gas, and electricity.
The Illinois LinkCard is a free, easy-to-use, and secure way to get a state-by-state picture of how Illinois’s healthcare system is doing, says Dan Wiedemann, chief operating officer of Linked-In.
Linked in is a new, third-party company that’s been around for a few years and it’s one of the easiest ways to do that.
Link card users can access a variety of government and private providers, including hospitals, universities, universities of Illinois, the Illinois Department of Transportation, and even a handful of local and state government agencies.
“The Link Card was designed to enable Illinois residents to access the same benefits as residents of other states,” Wiedomann said in a press release.
“We’ve made it easier for Illinois residents by providing a free and easy-of-cost card that enables them to sign up and use Illinois Link.”
The IllinoisLinkCard is just one of several initiatives LinkedInsights has in the works.
Other new features include the creation of an app called LinkedEmpire, which allows people to search for information on topics, then see which companies are listed, and to check out a detailed list of links on a map.
The app also includes an in-app shopping cart for consumers.
LinkingIn’s Wiedmann said Linkedinsights will expand its partnerships with more state government entities, as well as expanding the list of state agencies that can use Linked cards.
LinkableInsights, a Chicago-based company, has partnered with the Illinois state government, Illinois Department for the Aging, and the Illinois Parks and Recreation Department to launch the IllinoisLink Card.
The IllinoisLink card is available for $99.95.
