Enroll online through Healthcare.gov:
Healthcare.gov is the only online source where you can apply for and, if eligible, receive federal tax credits when purchasing and enrolling.
In general, tax credits may be available for individuals whose household income falls between 138% and 400% of the federal poverty level (FPL).
Enroll through a provider:
If you know you are not eligible for the premium tax credit, you have the option of purchasing insurance directly through the insurance company’s website. In general, people whose household income exceeds 400% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) are not eligible for federal tax credits.
Apply for Medicaid or Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP):
If you or someone in your household might be eligible for public health coverage, you can apply online directly through ASSIST .

Protect yourself against identity fraud
To sign up for health insurance, you will have to provide some personal information. As long as you sign up through Choose Health Delaware or Healthcare.gov , you can trust that your information is safe and secure. Here are some tips to help you keep your personal information and identity safe:
- Don’t give any personal information to anyone without official identification. All licensed Choose Health Delaware Guides have the proper ID. By law, they are not permitted to share any of your information.
- There’s no need to give out your Social Security number except when you’re signing up. So unless you’re completing the application, keep it to yourself.
To get an estimate of what insurance might cost you, provide only the minimum amount of demographic personal information necessary—such as your household income and the number of people in your family—never your Social Security number.Find out more at HealthCare.gov
