Request for Navigator Info an Impediment



Under the guise of better "understanding the work" health insurance exchange navigators will perform, a request from some GOP members of the House Energy & Commerce Committee carries the whiff of political motivation.

I'm not supportive of GOP efforts to repeal the ACA. I think the law's fate will evolve accordingly based on its true value and "popular opinion" over the next couple years. Based on polls, all the delays, changes and waivers already made and current, real world experience getting these exchanges off the ground, I don't think the GOP needs to get involved with trying to alter anything; change is apparently happening without any help needed from the GOP. But I'm totally supportive of the GOP effort to understand the role and boundaries of Navigators. I think most people believe that fFundraising, voter registration efforts, and or campaign activities should NOT be part of the ACA. If this need for clarity is 'political posturing," then the author is wrong that those on both sides of the PPACA are "tired of this political posturing." I'm not.

Don't be so politically naive as to think that the role of navigators is to simplistically 'help' would-be insureds, and that there will not be any 'problems ' arising from inexperienced and (likely woefully) under-trainer so-called navigators. I'm sorry, but this aspect of the in-Affordable Care Act is quite problematic.
