What is a Health Insurance Marketplace Navigator? Navigators are trained and certified to provide unbiased information on health insurance options available through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Navigators help consumers, small businesses and their employees explore options and sign up for an insurance plan that meets their needs and budget by assisting them with eligibility and enrollment forms. Their services are free to consumers.
Why would I need a Health Insurance Marketplace Navigator to help me sign up for health insurance? Navigators can help walk you through the steps of filling out the necessary forms, clarify confusing terms and compare various insurance plans. Navigators have no special agenda. They are trained to be bias free. Language translation and hearing impaired services can also be made available to you through the help of a Navigator.
If you do not need the help of a Navigator but are interested in enrolling in the Health Insurance Marketplace, go to HealthCare.gov.
