Four Entities Given $800,000 to Help Utahns Navigate the Health Insurance Marketplaces
Posted on Aug. 20, 2013

As opening day fast approaches for the Health Insurance Marketplaces, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services continue to roll out new pieces to the health reform puzzle. In Utah, a total of over $800,000 has recently been granted to four companies to help the masses determine what insurance is right for them. CMS envisions these Navigators will ”serve as an in-person resource for Americans who want additional assistance in shopping for and enrolling in plans in the Health Insurance Marketplace this fall.”

The entities charged with being Utah’s Navigators are the Utah Health Policy Project, Utah AIDS Foundation, Cardon Healthcare Network, LLC DBA Cardon Outreach and the National Council of Urban Indian Health. Navigators are paid by the federal government to help individuals wade through the online Insurance Marketplace established under “Obamacare.”

Don’t forget that the Insurance Marketplaces start open enrollment October 1, 2013, for coverage beginning January 1, 2014.
