AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine agencies and community health centers are busily training workers, prepping outreach programs and finalizing advertising campaigns to reach consumers and sign them up for coverage on the exchange under the federal health care overhaul.
The exchange, or marketplace, opens for enrollment Tuesday. It's a key part of President Barack Obama's federal health care overhaul.
Navigators and other assisters say they're expecting some bumps as enrollment gets underway. But they are well-prepared and eager to help Mainers get insured.
More than 80 navigators will be stationed at eight community action agencies throughout the state. Help will also be available at various community health centers.
Navigators will be available for one-on-one appointments. They will also be stationed at sign-up events at libraries and school computer labs to field questions.
