A Selbyville woman is Delaware's first confirmed enrollee in the Delaware Health Insurance Marketplace through the Affordable Care Act.

After weeks of glitches and seven hours of technical assistance, 59-year-old Janice Baker explains she simply had to clear her Internet browser's cache and cookies and she was able to enroll.

"It might not be the government's computers. It may be your own computer that you're sitting in front of that is the problem," says Baker.

Baker says she applied to three difference insurance companies and was denied due to a health condition so she's thrilled with implementation of Obamacare.

"Very much worth it. I'm very happy and pleased to know that I can get in on a rate like this, and the policy is so much better than the policy I had before. I was very impressed," says Baker.

Baker's rate in the marketplace is $700 per month, which she says is $150 bucks lower than what she had been paying.

To comply with the Affordable Care Act and ensure health insurance coverage by January 1st, all affected Delawareans must be enrolled on the Health Insurance Marketplace by December 15th.
