A key subcontractor working to promote the Affordable Care Act in Illinois is a Chicago firm owned by three former aides to powerful Democrats.

Mike Noonan, Victor Reyes and Maze Jackson are among the consultants whose hourly billing rate of $282 is raising questions about whether Illinois did enough to rein in federal taxpayer costs during the “Get Covered Illinois” campaign.

Noonan is a former staffer for House Speaker Michael Madigan. Reyes is an ex-aide to former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley. Jackson is a former statewide field director for Gov. Pat Quinn.
