  • Champions for Coverage:  We encourage all of you to become Champions for Coverage!  As Open Enrollment draws near, we need help from both the private and public sector to help get the word out about the new Marketplace.   Help us make sure all Americans can get the care they need, when they need it, at a price they can afford.
  • Navigator Grants:  On August 15, 2013, HHS awarded $67 million in Navigator Cooperative Agreements to 105 entities to provide critical in-person consumer assistance in the 34 states operating a Federally-facilitated or State Partnership Marketplace.  Click here for a complete list of Navigators by state which includes how much each organization was awarded and here for the official HHS press release.  We will discuss the Navigator awards and answer any questions on the 8/21 office hours call.
  • Certified Application Counselors:  CAC Training will be going live shortly.  We hope to talk about this on the next call.
