Delaware Panel gets Update on ACA Implementation

Posted:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - State officials say they don't yet know how enrollment is going this year in Delaware's health insurance exchange.

The Delaware Health Care Commission received an update Thursday on the second year of implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

But state health and social services officials say won't be able report any enrollment numbers until they get them from the federal government. They say they hope to see the first monthly federal report around later this month.

State officials had hoped to enroll 35,000 of the estimated 90,000 uninsured residents in private insurance plans in the first year of Delaware's new health care exchange. The final enrollment was about 14,400, less than half of the state's goal but well above a federal government target of 8,000.
