State Selects Vendor as State-Based Exchange Navigator

The Pennsylvania Insurance Department (PID) has selected the Pennsylvania Association for Community Health Centers (PACHC) as the Navigator for the state-based exchange (SBE) that the state is developing. The SBE will take the place of the commonwealth’s current reliance on the federal Marketplace for Affordable Care Act (ACA) coverage. Full transition to the SBE is targeted for January 2021. This selection and accompanying funding will allow PACHC to continue and build on the hub and spoke enrollment assistance model we developed for individuals interested in Marketplace coverage. This includes monthly health center-based enrollment assister peer network calls, a dedicated outreach and enrollment track at our Annual Conference, trend analysis, intervention and outreach.
