The Department of Social Work has been awarded a grant in the amount of $183,500 to train selected state employees about the Affordable Health Care Act.
The training will ensure that the service centers provide accurate information to Delaware residents regarding eligibility for insurance under the legislation and various plans from which they can choose to obtain affordable insurance.
The Department of Social Work has hired three Marketplace Trainers who will work out of Canby State Service Center in Wilmington, the Department of Labor in Dover and the Adams Service Center in Georgetown, DE. When necessary, the staff will also assist the state service centers in registering and enrolling consumers in qualified health insurance plans.
A part-time program manager will work with Dr. Marlene Saunders, chair of the DSU Department of Social Work, and the project staff to ensure smooth operations.
