Tens of thousands Obamacare 'navigators' to be hired (new jobs despite sequester)
Washington Examiner ^ | 4/03/13 | Paul Bedard

Posted on 04/04/2013 3:12:39 PM PDT by Libloather

Tens of thousands of health care professionals, union workers and community activists hired as "navigators" to help Americans choose Obamacare options starting Oct. 1 could earn $20 an hour or more, according to new regulations issued Wednesday.

The 63-page rule covering navigators, drawn up by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, also said the government will provide free translators for those not fluent in English -- no matter what their native language is.

"The proposed requirements would also include that such entities and individuals provide consumers with information and assistance in the consumer's preferred language, at no cost to the consumer, which would include oral interpretation of non-English languages and the translation of written documents in non-English languages when necessary to ensure meaningful access," said the regulations.

And I’m sure they’ll be trained to find political leanings as well.

The real reason for the “navigators”

“Some in Congress are already wary of the navigators. Louisiana Republican Rep. Charles Boustany Jr., chairman of the House Ways and Means Oversight subcommittee, has raised questions about a voter registration provision in the Obamacare application Americans will have to fill out to receive health care, and whether Democratic-leaning activists will influence which party people choose to join.”

These jobs are not for us.

The massive transfer of money from those who work for it to those who vote for it has begun.

These people are not “navigators” in any sense of the word. They do not plot a course.

They are like the people who guided the dupes to the kool aid at Jonestown or the guards at the gulags.

But most likely they will just take a cushy job with little or no responsibility. They are political hacks who will get a guaranteed paycheck and do little or nothing.

Cultural and linguistic appropriateness and disability discrimination standards

Finally, the proposed rule addresses requirements for providing culturally and linguistically appropriate services, as well as services to the disabled. The proposed rule would require navigators to be familiar with the racial, ethnic, and cultural groups in their area, have access to oral interpretation and written translations of appropriate documents in non-English languages without cost to the consumer, to rely on family or friends for interpreters only when that is the consumers preferred alternative, and to have access to telephone interpretive services. Non-English speakers must be informed of the availability of these services. Programs must implement strategies to recruit and promote a staff that is representative of the demographic characteristics of the community. Auxiliary aids and services must also be available without cost to ensure that services are available to people with disabilities. Federally facilitated exchanges and state partnership exchanges must monitor compliance with navigator program requirements.

This is from California website:Role of Navigators
The Navigator program was designed to reach underserved populations - the poor, people of color, non-english speakers. Their role is outreach, education, and eligibility, as well as enrollment.

Navigator Compensation
Navigators will be paid by the Exchange. While actual compensation has not yet been decided, the Exchange is considering an enrollment fee in the range of $30 to $90 per enrollment.

No surprises here, just progressive doctrine combined with the Chicago political mob muscle methods.

Gee, is Obamacare being designed as an American healthcare system, or a “worldwide” healthcare system?

Hmmm?

All these jobs will go to groups like ACORN, La Raza, and sham groups run by Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

Inside a year they will be unionized and demanding more pay, less hours, and more benefits.
