Health coverage for your business and employees is more affordable than you think


From the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services:

Delaware’s Health Insurance Marketplace

Solutions for small businesses and individuals impacted by COVID-19,with special extended open enrollment from Feb. 15 until May 15.

Of all the attributes keeping small businesses on their feet during the pandemic — your resilience, determination, hard work, resourcefulness, and ability to think fast and adapt even faster — by far, the most powerful is your drive to do everything within your means to “do right” by your employees. That includes everyone from those you’ve had to lay off or cut to part-time hours to the families struggling with any number of COVID-related challenges in their lives.

A special three-month extended open enrollment period for low-cost, high-quality coverage is available from Delaware’s Health Insurance Marketplace. This resource is the very best place for you to support your business and employees by ensuring everyone has the health coverage they need — now more than ever.

Don’t delay. Special open enrollment ends Saturday, May 15, 2021.

If you own a small business in Delaware and had to eliminate or reduce employee health coverage due to the financial burdens of COVID-19, take time right now to explore Delaware’s Health Insurance Marketplace. The Marketplace offers a range of coverage options for individuals and families as well as small-business owners. The plans available are:

  • Rates for plans have decreased, and tax credits are available to reduce costs of monthly premiums.
  • Plans cover health care provider visits, telehealth, preventive care, prescription drugs, emergency care, hospitalization, mental health services, dental, and much more.
  • Developed for individuals, families, and businesses.
  • Coverage starts the first of the month after enrollment.
  • Backed by professional guidance. Realizing that many people using this resource have never had to look beyond an employer’s plan to get health insurance coverage, the Marketplace includes enrollment specialists to guide them through the process and help make sure they get the right plan for themselves and their families.

No one should be without health coverage.

In addition to tapping into Delaware’s Health Insurance Marketplace for your own small business, please share this information with employees and other professionals in your network who have been impacted by COVID-19 and can benefit from affordable health insurance. Thank you for joining us in this important initiative and helping us keep our people, families, and businesses healthy statewide.
