Covered California plans to award $16.9 million in “Navigator” grants
San Francisco Business Times

Covered California, the state’s Obamacare exchange, plans to award $16.9 million in grants to educate consumers about its Navigator program, “the next phase in the agency’s outreach, education and enrollment efforts.” That next phase comes after some critics took issue with earlier outreach and enrollment procedures. The exchange, run by Executive Director Peter Lee, hopes to enroll 130,700 subsidy-eligible consumers during Covered California’s second open-enrollment period, which runs Nov. 15, 2014 through Feb. 15, 2015.
