Community Partners Serve As Bedrock to Health Care Reform Questions

July 9th, 2014 by Jessica Lee

The way we shop for and buy our health insurance has changed dramatically since the Affordable Care Act was passed in 2010. Fortunately, navigators may be a trusted source for in-person assistance when applying or enrolling.

Lakes and Prairies Community Action Partnership, Inc., has several navigators on staff to assist families and individuals through the MNSure System.

“All Lakes & Prairies staff have had background checks by the State of Minnesota and passed or they would not be on staff,” explained Joe Pederson, executive director of Lakes and Prairie Community Action Agency.

In Minnesota, navigators are not insurance agents or brokers, but they have completed 20 hours of training and passed a required exam. Certified navigators in Clay County, Minnesota, can be located by visiting the MNSure website.

Learn more about the changing world of health care at our upcoming Health Care Summit on July 22. Check out our panels, speakers and register for this informative event today.
