Open Enrollment began Thursday in DE for 2019 health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

But federal funding for navigators who help people sign up in Florida was cut from $4.5 million last year to $1.25 million this year.

"Because of changes with the individual mandate we will have to wait and see what Delawareans do, but we're encouraging everyone who is able to purchase and have insurance coverage to do so", said Walker.

Packham and Ray, who have been ACA navigators since the federal marketplace opened five years ago, said the first day of open enrollment was off to a slow start for them, but they had appointments on the books for the coming weeks.

"People need to be aware that those plans are not the same kinds of health insurance, that often times they don't cover preexisting conditions, that there may be some limits in there", she said.

Since those initial problems were fixed, the website serving people in 39 states has worked fairly smoothly, first under President Barack Obama and now under Donald Trump. These types of policies may cost less, but they also generally cover less than an ACA-compliant marketplace plan. In South Dakota, policies of longer than six-months are guaranteed renewable.

With health care a major issue in Tuesday's elections, this sign-up season under the Trump administration is getting close scrutiny. While the ACA provides states the opportunity to seek a waiver under Section 1332, sometimes called the State Relief and Empowerment Waiver, they have been hard to obtain.

Dial explained, "Purchasing health insurance through the Marketplace is a complicated process". Many consumers aren't aware of this: about half of respondents mistakenly believed there will be a tax penalty for not having health insurance in 2019, according to a survey of more than 1,500 consumers by eHealth.

With the 2019 health insurance open enrollment period just beginning, those seeking plans for next year should know that three important changes are taking place. Here you can find information regarding the ACA, qualified health plans and comparisons of marketplace plans. Health insurance offered on the state marketplace has to meet certain requirements like accepting people with pre-existing conditions, the department said. It is not Obamacare.

The Trump administration passed a ruling over the summer expanding the duration of short-term health insurance plans that proponents hail as a cheaper option than Obamacare plans.
