Ways to Help Families Enroll
Individuals and families will have access to a number of resources to learn about the Marketplace and figure out their coverage options. They can get in-person assistance from Navigators, non-Navigator assistance personnel, certified application counselors, and/or agents and brokers. Learn more about the types of assistance available to help individuals and families enroll in health coverage.
In addition, more than 1,100 health centers across the nation received a total of $150 million in federal grants to help enroll uninsured Americans. The health centers will help individuals and families understand their coverage options through the Health Insurance Marketplace, Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program; determine their eligibility and what financial help they can get; and enroll in new affordable health coverage options.
