CMS Announces $2.3 million for Navigators to Support Special Enrollment Period

​The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced approximately $2.3 million in additional funding for current Navigator grantees in Federally-facilitated Marketplace (FFM) states to support the outreach, education and enrollment efforts around the 2021 Special Enrollment Period (SEP) that runs through May 15, 2021. Navigators help consumers access financial assistance through HealthCare.gov, complete their applications, and enroll in coverage through the Marketplace, Medicaid, or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

Navigator organizations can determine how best to utilize the additional funding made available by CMS based on their previously approved plans and current needs. CMS will review all updated plans and budget documentation that outline how Navigators plan to use the additional funding to enhance their previously approved program operations for the remainder of the 2020-2021 budget period.

CMS plans to publish a Navigator Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) this spring to allow sufficient time to award a new round of Navigator grants in advance of Open Enrollment for the 2022 plan year. The current 2020 Navigator grant awards run through August 29, 2021.

South Dakota’s Navigator Program is Western South Dakota Community Action Partnership 

More information about the funding is available at on the CMS website.
