Among the 90,000 currently uninsured Delaware residents who can purchase insurance through the new virtual marketplace is Sarah Heller of Wilmington.

Heller, a bartender and cook, says she was eagerly awaiting Oct. 1. She spoke during a health insurance marketplace kickoff event hosted by Christiana Care at Hanover Presbyterian Church in Wilmington.

"There's a lot of people who want insurance like I do that either simply can't afford it, don't understand it or for some reason as I have, cannot get it," she said.
