Trump slashes ACA navigator funds by 85%

State and local groups now know how much funding they'll have to help enroll people in the ObamaCare exchanges after the Trump administration slashed the total grant money available, according to two sources.

The groups, known as navigators, have been worried over their funding for ObamaCare enrollment, outreach and education. On Aug. 31, the Department of Health and Human Services announced the total funds available for these groups would decrease from $62.5 million to $36.8 million, a 41 percent cut.

Their grant funds ran out at the beginning of the month, and they will not be paid retroactively for the first two weeks of September, according to one source. In preparation, some groups had laid off staff and cut salaries.

Now, navigators will be analyzing their new budgets ahead of an ObamaCare enrollment season beginning Nov. 1.

TVNL Comment:  This will kill so many who cannot find proper insurance. This administration stops at nothing to gain political points.  Wake up, America.
