As shared by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS):

“Today, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) awarded $10 million in Navigator grant awards to 39 organizations who will serve as Navigators in Federally-facilitated Exchange states. These awards will support the work of organizations that offer assistance to consumers navigating, shopping for, and enrolling in health insurance coverage for 2019. 


Navigators are one of many ways individuals can get help shopping for, and enrolling in, health insurance coverage; CMS continues to expand options for individuals to enroll in coverage through partnerships with the private sector, including agents and brokers and health insurance issuers.”
