The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services today awarded 39 organizations grants to help consumers shop for and enroll in health coverage in 2019 as navigators in states with federally-facilitated health insurance exchanges. The recipients will partner with public and private organizations in their communities, many of which include hospitals, to provide targeted outreach to consumers who could benefit from individual market coverage, coordinating with local Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program outreach. Applicants were encouraged to leverage volunteers and use cost-effective strategies, such as virtual or mobile assistance.
