Who are Health Insurance Marketplace navigators & certified assisters?

Navigators in Alabama 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.

Marketplace navigators and certified assisters can aid you by:

  • Seeing if you qualify for a Special Enrollment
  • Answering questions and helping complete applications for health insurance
  • Helping find out if you qualify for financial help, or subsidies
  • Helping you choose a plan that fits your needs and budget
  • Working with you to help you understand your coverage
  • Assist with complicated situations, such as when one family member receives public assistance and others do not
  • Conducting outreach and education about the new health coverage options

So, why do Marketplace navigators want to help me?

What does a navigator’s job look like?
