Q&A: FL's top health care navigator in spotlight
For nearly 15 years, Jodi Ray has been on a mission to help children get health insurance. The job isn't easy, but it isn't controversial, either. Then in August, Florida Covering Kids & Families, which Ray runs as project manager, got a $4.2 million federal grant for hiring and training nearly 70 navigators around the state to help adults shopping for subsidized insurance through the Affordable Care Act marketplaces. For the first time, Ray was in the public spotlight. And not just because her University of South Florida-based group had received the second-highest grant in the 36 states where the federal government is running the marketplace.
