Tens of thousands of Obamacare ‘navigators’ to be hired
FeaturedNewsComments Off on Tens of thousands of Obamacare ‘navigators’ to be hired
Tens of thousands of health care professionals, union workers and community activists hired as “navigators” to help Americans choose Obamacare options starting Oct. 1 could earn $20 an hour or more, according to new regulations issued Wednesday.
“The proposed requirements would also include that such entities and individuals provide consumers with information and assistance in the consumer’s preferred language, at no cost to the consumer, which would include oral interpretation of non-English languages and the translation of written documents in non-English languages when necessary to ensure meaningful access,” said the regulations.
The rules also addressed conflict of interest and other potential issues that navigators could face as the public’s first stop on the Obamacare trail.
It is still not clear how many navigators will be required. California, however, provides a hint. It wants 21,000.
That could be an expensive proposition. The proposed rules, now open for public comment, suggest an estimated pay of $20-$48 an hour.
The goal of the Foundation for New Hampshire Independence is to educate citizens on the benefits of the 'Live Free or Die' state peacefully declaring its independence and separating from the federal government of the United States.
