What is the Health Insurance Marketplace?
The Marketplace is a new way to find quality health coverage. It is an online insurance store with the capability to compare policies offered by different companies. Insurance applications and purchases are completed directly through the website and a single application is all that is necessary. The website includes specific details of the plans including coverage, cost, advance premium tax credits, cost – sharing reductions, and tax penalties.
What is a Marketplace Navigator?
The Marketplace Navigator is an individual or organization that is trained and able to help consumers, small businesses, and their employees as they look for health coverage options through the Marketplace. The Navigator is responsible for answering consumers’ questions and assisting a consumer to select a coverage option that meets their needs and budget. The Navigator provides all information in a fair and unbiased way and assists consumers in completing eligibility and enrollment forms
