What is the navigator program?

As part of the Affordable Care Act, which was signed into law in 2010, navigator services are offered in the State of New York to assist individuals, families, and small businesses in applying for health insurance. New York has awarded grants to not-for-profit agencies throughout the state, including STIC,   to provide navigator services to NYS residents seeking to enroll in a New York State Marketplace health plan.
What can a navigator do to help?
Navigators meet face to face with individuals, families and businesses who wish to enroll in health insurance plans through the New York State Marketplace.  Advantages and services provided by navigators include:

How do I reach a navigator to schedule an appointment for assistance?

It is best to call and schedule an appointment with a navigator as soon as you know that you would like to have navigator assistance. Navigators can be booked far into the future during peak enrollment times. We will make every effort to accommodate your scheduling needs.
Are navigator services accessible?
Yes! Navigators are ready and able to assist individuals in overcoming barriers that may be preventing them from enrollment. Barriers such as mobility, sensory impairment, or language translation and interpreting can all be overcome with navigator assistance. Please contact a navigator in advance if such circumstance exists and we will work to support your needs and overcome barriers throughout the enrollment process.  
Are there other agencies that have navigators?
Absolutely! Depending on what county you live in there are other agencies that can help you. Take a look at the list below and see who may be able to help you in your county.
