Florida balks at insurance navigators as Obamacare deadline nears
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius recently announced that the federal government is awarding some $67 million in grants to help healthcare groups around the country set up a network of so-called navigators. These helpers will find out if they qualify for subsidies and assist them in shopping for coverage. As part of the enrollment process, navigators will look at tax records, take Social Security numbers and have access to sensitive health information. But Florida Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican, says he believes the federal rules are inadequate.
