Del. Centers Get Money to Boost ACA Enrollment

Posted:

DOVER, Del. (AP)- Delaware's congressional delegation says the federal government is providing more money to the state to try to boost enrollment in its new health insurance exchange.
    
Sens. Tom Carper and Chris Coons and Rep. John Carney said Friday that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has awarded more than $175,000 in grants to Delaware's federally qualified health centers to help enroll Delawareans in health insurance coverage.
    
Lawmakers say La Red Health Center, Henrietta Johnson Medical Center and Westside Family Healthcare will use the money to help with enrollment efforts in all three counties, including expanding hours for existing outreach and enrollment assistance workers and hiring new or temporary workers.
    
Lawmakers say the three health centers served about 39,400 patients last year, more than a third of whom were uninsured.
