Navigators are trained and paid by the federal government. Their goal is simple: to help you find the coverage that best fits you... at no cost to you on the federal Marketplace, or exchange, Healthcare.gov!
They are well versed on how Healthcare.gov works as well as in Medicaid, CHIP, and all Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, Marketplace plans. This makes them a great resource when you are choosing a health plan - and looking to get subsidies to help pay for it.

Because navigators and assisters (who typically vary by level of training) predominately come from a social work or non-profit background, they are motivated by connecting consumers to the insurance that best fits them, by eliminating the number of uninsured consumers and serving a population that is often underserved.
Despite continuous federal cuts, navigators frequently work 80 hours per week during Open Enrollment. They often divide their time between active outreach (driving to prisons, shelters, etc.) and enrollment events. They are people who like to help people.
We don’t really have any. We just firmly believe in our plans, pricing, service, and Care Partner relationships. We want to ensure that you are getting the best plan for the best price. And we know all too well that buying health insurance can be overwhelming, so we strongly encourage you to use these free resources.
Be sure to bring documents that can prove your identity, U.S. Citizenship and/or Immigration Status, and Date of Birth.
