Choosing Better Health Care for Delaware

Carper’s Connection

November 15, 2014

Dear Friends,

Starting today, Delawareans can enroll or re-enroll in a health plan through the Choose Health Delaware health insurance marketplace. It is the second year of the marketplace and it’s critical that you get covered now if you haven’t already.


For too long, Americans have spent more on health care than any other nation and worse yet did not always get better results. As a key piece of the Affordable Care Act, the health insurance marketplace provides a gateway to more affordable and higher quality health coverage by increasing consumer choice in health care options. 


In its first year, more than 14,000 Delawareans have used Choose Health Delaware to find a health plan that works for them. I’m proud that Delawareans are enrolling in plans that can help them live a healthier life, perhaps leave a little extra change in their pocket and help to bring down the long-terms costs for our country in this sector, which has long been a drag on the American economy. 


I urge Delawareans without insurance to protect themselves and their loved ones by choosing a health care plan for the coming year through the marketplace at It’s also crucial that that those who enrolled last year go online to examine whether their plan is still the best fit for them and find out if anything has changed about the tax subsidies they’re eligible to receive. 


Don’t have access to a computer? You can also call any of Delaware’s own “Marketplace Guides,” who can walk you through the process of choosing and enrolling in the best healthcare plan for you.
