New Funding Opportunity Announcement for Navigators in Federally-facilitated and State Partnership Marketplaces
CMS has published a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) on the availability of up to $54 million in cooperative agreements to fund Navigators in Federally-facilitated or State Partnership Marketplaces. The Affordable Care Act requires 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.
Each Marketplace will have at least two types of entities serving as Navigators, and at least one type of entity will be a community and consumer-focused nonprofit organization. Applicants should have expertise in eligibility and enrollment rules and procedures; the range of qualified health plan options and insurance affordability programs; the needs of underserved and vulnerable populations (such as rural populations and individuals with limited English proficiency); and privacy and security standards. Applicants that expect to assist a specific community or population may apply, although awardees must serve all consumers who seek their assistance. Smaller-sized entities and individuals are encouraged to partner with other entities or individuals to apply as a consortium.
