HHS opens applications for ObamaCare 'navigators'

Each state marketplace should have two navigators, according to regulations released last week, one of which must be a nonprofit entity. Navigators will not directly enroll customers in a plan — that job is reserved for the exchanges themselves — but rather will help consumers compare their options.

People who are compensated by insurance companies aren't allowed to become navigators.

The deadline to apply for a navigator grant is June 7.
