Health Care Navigation

JFS assists all community members with accessing health insurance through the Affordable Care Act. Anyone can sign up during Open Enrollment, but those facing qualifying life events can apply during a special enrollment period. Qualifying life events include:

  • Job change or loss
  • Household change (marriage, divorce, birth or adoption of child)
  • Loss of other health coverage
  • Denial by Medicaid or CHIP coverage
  • Moving your residence outside your insurance’s plan’s service area
  • Gaining citizenship
  • Leaving incarceration

We can also assist qualifying individuals and families in applying for Medicaid throughout the year.
