While they don’t have exact numbers yet, the Navigators say the overall response has been positive and they continue to get inundated with phone calls from people looking to make appointments.
Open enrollment in the health care marketplace will end on March 31, 2014, so Jodi said the plan is to accomplish as much outreach as possible until that time.
“Moving forward, we are really going to try and get all the Navigators in place and out in the communities,” Jodi said. “A lot of them will be using iPhones and iPads to get into the rural areas where sometimes transportation isn’t the best. We are encouraging anyone who’s eligible to just go on the site and look and see what benefits might be available to you.”
