Ohio Navigator Information
 
The insurance navigator program in Ohio is run by the federally facilitated exchange and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Therefore, HHS is responsible for the funding for each insurance navigator entity. Entities cannot serve as Navigators without receiving federal grant funding from CMS to perform Navigator duties.
