 NAVIGATORS  NOW  AVAILABLE  IN  

RACINE, KENOSHA, WALWORTH AND ROCK COUNTIES

  

Through a grant with the Covering Kids and Families organization, the Racine Kenosha Community Action Agency has hired two Healthcare Navigators. One Navigator will be responsible for Racine and Kenosha counties while the other will concentrate her efforts in Walworth and Rock counties.

The purpose of the Navigator is to provide information and education to the community about the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) and to provide assistance to consumers and organizations working with individuals interested in enrolling in an Insurance Marketplace plan.

The Racine/Kenosha Navigator will be available by appointment at the Racine Community Action office as well as at various sites throughout Racine and Kenosha counties. The Walworth/Rock Navigator will be based in Janesville but will be available for appointments throughout Walworth and Rock counties.

If you or someone you know has questions about how the Affordable Care Act can help you or if you’re interested in enrolling and need some help, you may reach the Navigators at the following numbers: 

Racine/Kenosha: (262) 637-8377, ext.114.
