The University of Arizona Center for Rural Health (AzCRH) was awarded a Cooperative Agreement to Support Navigators in Arizona’s Federally Facilitated Marketplace.
Under the general supervision of the Director of the Center for Rural Health, this position will conduct outreach, enrollment, education, marketing, and re-enrollment activities in Arizona’s Marketplace. AzCRH prioritizes hard to reach rural areas and populations with historically low FFM participation rates including Latino, American Indian, rural, disabled and special populations in all 15 Arizona counties, specifically Coconino, Mohave, Navajo and Apache Counties. Navigators raise awareness, provide education, distribute FFM enrollment information, education and materials. Navigators collaborate with consumers, stakeholders, and other funded Arizona Navigator programs. Navigators provide enrollment assistance, educate eligible consumers about coverage resources in Arizona’s Marketplace, and direct consumers ineligible for Marketplace coverage to other potential coverage available through the Medicaid program – the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) – or other programs. Navigators serve as an unbiased, accurate resource for consumers, businesses and others about plans offered in the Arizona Marketplace, Medicaid coverage, and other coverage alternatives. AzCRH Navigators work off campus, based out of community organizations.
This position requires some evening and weekend work. The successful candidate must be comfortable and effective at working with culturally diverse groups of individuals. Also possess the ability to successfully manage differing needs, interests and viewpoints from consumers. An enthusiasm for health care reform is necessary.
