State's Navigator program will be funded the same as last year

September 19, 2017

The state’s success in enrolling people for coverage over the past few years has ensured funding for the coming year.

Last week, federal officials announced they would fund the state’s health insurance “navigator” program at the same level as last year.

The announcement comes after confusion over funding for this year’s navigator program, which provides volunteers who help people sign up for insurance on the online marketplace. Maneuvering through the process can be confusing, especially to first-timers.

Legal Aid of North Carolina will receive $2.44 million to support enrollment activities around the state. That’s the same amount as was received last year by the NC Navigator Consortium, a group of 14 healthcare, social service and legal aid organizations around the state. Legal Aid is the lead agency of the group.
