Del. expects more than 9K Obamacare enrollees

Open enrollment for the Affordable Care Act ended at midnight on Monday and state health officials say enrollment numbers will be announced next week.

Delaware Health and Social Services Secretary Rita Landgraf told WDEL the final numbers won't be released until next week.

Landgraf did say the number of Delawareans enrolled under the affordable care act during open enrollment will likely top 9,000.

However, she did note there was a lot of traffic toward and from marketplace guides as the deadline approached.

"In the final hours we did see a significant surge of volume across our state of people accessing the marketplace guides to get that support in enrolling," Landgraf said.

The final enrollment numbers for Delaware are expected on April 10.
