ACA IPA/Navigator Program

Affordable Care Act: IPA/Navigator Program
In July of 2013, the Governor announced contract awards for the New York State Department of Health's In-Person Assistor/Navigator program, which will serve the state as the primary facilitator of enrollment in health insurance through the newly established Health Benefit Exchange.

The Brooklyn Alliance was awarded the contract to provide these services in Brooklyn to both individuals and small businesses. We are honored to have been chosen to support the state during this landmark time of health insurance reform and implementation. 

The Brooklyn Alliance is partnering with the Brooklyn Public Library to facilitate onsite enrollment services in communities all across Brooklyn.

Below is the schedule of sites, including hours of operation and languages spoken:
