The Health Resources and Services Administration has awarded $150 million in grants to 1,159 community health centers across all states and territories to assist in enrolling uninsured patients in health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
The funds pay for hiring 2,900 workers to assist with enrollment of patients in a benefit plan offered through Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program or in private plans via health insurance exchanges.
These grants will supplement a program in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to spend up to $54 million in grant funds to hire “Navigators” within state health insurance exchanges to aid consumers as they compare and select a health insurance benefits package.
A list of HRSA community health center grant recipients is available here.
