On August 15, Kathleen Sibelius, Secretary of the US Department of Health and Human Services, announced the 105 recipients awarded grants to serve as navigators in federally facilitated and state partnership marketplaces (formerly called “exchanges”). The press release and a list of navigator organizations can be found here.
Information regarding navigators, or in-person assisters, in states operating their own marketplaces is state specific. For anyone interested in determining the status of navigator designations in state-based marketplaces, we encourage you to explore the applicable resources in your state. Information about state-based marketplace resources can be located at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight website.
