Healthcare Navigators

Navigators play a vital role in helping consumers prepare electronic and paper applications to establish eligibility and enroll in coverage through the Marketplaces and potentially qualify for an insurance affordability programs. They also provide outreach and education to raise awareness about the Marketplace, and refer consumers to health insurance ombudsman and consumer assistance programs when necessary. Navigators are funded through federal grant funds and must complete comprehensive federal Navigator training, criminal background checks, and state training and registration (when applicable), prior to assisting consumers.

Gulf Bend Center’s Healthcare Navigators are available to meet with you in person and help you apply, pick a plan, enroll, and answer your questions regarding the affordable care act.  Contact one of our navigators today!
