Delaware Health Reform Effort Moves Forward

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Delaware officials continue to make progress in implementing a state health care exchange under the national health care reform law.
    
The Delaware Health Care Commission received a status update Thursday on the state's effort to implement provisions of the Affordable Care Act.
    
Thursday's meeting included discussion of proposed standards for identifying and training marketplace assisters who will help residents and businesses navigate the state's health insurance exchange.  Under the proposed rules, applicants must submit to criminal background checks, but a criminal conviction would not bar a person from serving as a marketplace assister handling sensitive personal consumer information.
    
Officials expect to contract with community organizations throughout the state to hire 60 marketplace assisters, who would assist and provide information to the estimated 35,000 people expected to enroll in Delaware's exchange.
