The Health Connector is pleased to announce that we are seeking applications from qualified and eligible organizations to serve as Navigators from January 1, 2023 through June 30, 2024.

The Navigator program is an outreach, education and enrollment assistance grant program required by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for every Health Insurance Marketplace.

• Target the Uninsured
• Support Current Health Connector Members
• Increase Awareness about Health Connector Coverage
