Family Health Center of MA Selected as Navigator, Receives $167K Grant

Friday, September 09, 2016

 

The Family Health Center of Worcester is one of 15 community groups around Massachusetts to be selected as Navigators and will receive an open enrollment grant of $167,013.

“Having health insurance means you can get the care you need and pay less for it, particularly if you qualify for the ConnectorCare program, which has low premiums and co-pays, and no deductible. Navigators can help us find uninsured people in their neighborhoods, and help those people apply for coverage and pick the best plan for their family,” said Louis Gutierrez, the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Health Connector.

Open enrollment begins on November 1 and runs through January, 31 of 2017.

The Family Health Center provides access to medical, dental, behavioral and social services through 15 locations in Worcester and South Worcester County and is returning as a Navigator for the third year. 

The center will give support to underserved and uninsured residents through its multilingual and multicultural staff, and will also promote self-sufficiency with the availability of self-service computer kiosks. 

Navigator Program 

Navigators are community organizations that help uninsured people complete an application and select a plan, and they can also assist currently-insured people shop and make sure they are in the right plan for 2017. 

The Navigator program is mandated by the Affordable Care Act and is part of a network of assisters which include over 1,600 Certified Assistance Counselors. 

This is the fourth year of the Navigator program.
