Stories from the ground
As of January 3, 2014, 4,241 Delawareans have gained access to health care coverage through expanded Medicaid and the Marketplace since October 1
Number of individuals assessed eligible for Medicaid/CHIP by the Marketplace by the U.S. Dept. of HHS = 5,732
Electronic account transfer between the State and FFM has been delayed. Delaware is among the first group of states selected for testing account transfer functionality with the Marketplace. Delaware has successfully implemented account transfer to the Federal government and successfully received account transfers from the Federal government in a test environment.
For those individuals assessed eligible for Medicaid by the Federal Government, DHSS is conducting further outreach and completing eligibility determinations.
As of January 3, 2014, 1,058 adults were enrolled in the Medicaid program under the ACA expansion.

Not-eligible for subsidies
Eligible for Federal Subsidies
ASSIST (<138% FPL or <212% for children and pregnant women)
