United Way Offers Navigators to help with Health Insurance Enrollment
Trained HealthCare.gov Enrollment Specialists to Provide Free and Confidential Help

Professionally trained Navigators are available throughout Brevard to help people in our community enroll in health plans via HealthCare.gov. The 2018 open enrollment period will run from November 1 thru December 15, 2017.

There are a lot of choices when it comes to selecting a health insurance plan. Thanks to a grant sponsored by the University of South Florida, United Way of Brevard is able to provide Navigators to assist our community.

United Way’s Navigators guide consumers through the enrollment process, including the amount financial assistance available, to help families make the best coverage decision possible. Additionally, Navigators are licensed in the State of Florida. Navigators also provide information on public programs such as Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program. Navigators can also provide information and forms for special enrollments, exemptions, setting up online accounts, and help with current applications requiring updated information.

Appointments (highly suggested) are available Monday through Friday and can be made by calling 321.635.8885. Or you can schedule an appointment online at Get Covered America
