Hospitals and other eligible organizations and individuals may apply until July 22 for a portion of $10 million in 2019 funding for navigators to help individuals enroll in health coverage through the federally-facilitated exchange, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced yesterday. The agency plans to allocate at least $100,000 in funding in each of the 34 states that participate in the exchange, based on the size of the state’s remaining eligible uninsured population. Funding for a second 12-month period will be contingent on availability of funds and the awardee continuing to meet all navigator program requirements, CMS said. To access the funding announcement, search opportunity number CA-NAV-19-001 at https://www.grants.gov. For more information, see the CMS overview and FAQ documents.
