Imagine being 46-years old, diabetic and uninsured. You’re getting sicker every day because you can’t get the treatment you need to control your chronic illness. You also have parents who need long-term care, teenagers living home, and your oldest soon to graduate from college. You don’t have insurance, your children don’t have insurance and your parent's Medicare doesn’t cover all their health care expenses.


This may seem unimaginable, but millions of Americans and their families face this reality every day.

But now—regardless of one’s financial ability, employment status or a pre-existing illness—everyone has access to health care coverage that is affordable and comprehensive.

Now, re-imagine the possibilities…

  • If you no longer had to worry about finding health insurance that works for you.
  • If you didn’t have to worry about your struggling recent college graduate going uninsured in a tough job market.
  • If a previous illness wouldn’t keep you from getting coverage for the next go-round.
  • If you knew that you would never have to face the possibility of losing your insurance just when you need it most – when you’re sick.

The Health Insurance Marketplace

The new Health Insurance Marketplace brings good news and good health to millions of Americans. The Marketplace makes it easy to shop for and compare prices and benefits for all of the health plans offered in Delaware—all in one convenient place. Low-cost or free plans are available, depending on your income. But regardless of cost, all plans are now required to cover important benefits, like doctor visits, emergency care, prescriptions and more.

The Health Law

Even for those who have insurance, the health law brings added peace of mind. Insurance companies can no longer deny coverage when you or a loved one need it most – even if you have a pre-existing condition, like asthma, diabetes, high-blood pressure or even cancer. And if you or a family member becomes ill or injured, your insurance company can’t put dollar limits on your coverage or cancel your plan.

Plus, young adults can stay on their parent's health insurance plan until they turn 26. Even if your child is in school, living away from home – or even married – as long as they’re under age 26, they can stay covered on your plan.

So go ahead. Re-imagine life with affordable and accessible health coverage. Think about the long-term financial security it brings and the added peace of mind for you and your family. You have better choices when you’re no longer tied to a job and you can’t get health insurance anywhere else.

That kind of freedom was once a dream for so many but now it’s a reality.  Sign up now at
