U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) today announced $2 million in federal Affordable Care Act Navigator funds for agencies and projects in New Jersey — including $565,000 for the Urban League of Hudson County — that will help enroll people in the new health insurance marketplace.
“Today’s announcement is another step forward in implementing the Affordable Care Act and ensuring that New Jerseyans will be able to access high quality, affordable health coverage in the marketplace starting in October,” Menendez said.
“These five organizations will help provide individuals and families throughout our state with unbiased, clear information — not only about the marketplace plans, but also their Medicaid and CHIP options.
“Together with the other enrollment assistance organizations — including community health centers, certified application counselors, public libraries, and insurance agents and brokers– these navigators will help ensure everyone is able to make well-informed decisions about their health coverage that’s best for their families.”
The Affordable Care Act requires the new health insurance marketplaces to establish a navigator program to help consumers understand new coverage options and find the most affordable coverage that meets their health care needs.
The Obama administration is spending $700 million on advertising just to promote Obamacare.
