With the recent news about the Trump administration's plan to cut funding for ACA navigator groups, we figured it might be helpful to explain.
What Is A Navigator?
Technically, a navigator is an organization or person trained and able to help consumers, small businesses, and their employees as they look for health coverage options through the Marketplace, including completing eligibility and enrollment forms. However, since they are required to be unbiased (and are also unlicensed) they can't actually give you advice as to what plan is best or tell you what plan makes the most sense for you.
What do these cuts mean?
It means there's going to to be a lot people around to enroll people, unfortunately. The good news is that brokers like our team here at Independent Health Agents are stepping up to fill in the gap.
