The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced $60 million in additional grants available to support navigators in federally facilitated and state partnership health insurance marketplaces (exchanges). The Affordable Care Act established navigators to provide enrollment assistance and education to consumers about health insurance on the marketplaces.Interested organizations must submit a nonbinding letter of intent by June 30, with complete applications due July 10. Awards will be announced in September, upon the expiration of the previous grant cycle. Previous grantees must apply again in this grant cycle.
This announcement comes weeks after CMS released a final rule updating regulations and requirements for navigators in 2015. Please contact Xiaoyi Huang, JD, director of policy, at
