WASHINGTON, D.C. Senator Jay Rockefeller, Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee Subcommittee on Health Care, today announced more than $642,000 in federal funding for organizations in West Virginia to help West Virginians learn about their new coverage options and enroll in health care plans under the Health Insurance Marketplace (formerly known as Exchanges) established under the Affordable Care Act.
All West Virginians deserve access to affordable health care coverage, which is why giving them the tools to make informed decisions about their coverage is so important, said Rockefeller. This funding will give West Virginians the opportunity to sit down with real experts to select a health care plan that best meets their needs and the needs of their families. Navigating health care coverage can be toughbut these awards will make it much easier for families to sign up for coverage through the new Health Insurance Marketplace.
The organizations will serve as navigators for West Virginians looking for health care coverage. The organizations will provide one-on-one guidance and unbiased information on the Health Insurance Marketplace, health care coverage, and public programs like Medicaid and the Childrens Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
The funding comes from the Department of Health and Human Service (HHS). The below amounts were awarded to the following organizations:
$365,758 West Virginia Parent Training and Information West Virginia Parent Training and Information will help the uninsured get coverage, and will specifically reach out to people with disabilities, people with limited literacy or English proficiency, low-income individuals, and people in rural areas to help them obtain coverage.
$276,617 Advance Patient Advocacy Advance Patient Advocacy will work with West Virginia medical centers to identify uninsured individuals and assist them in making informed decisions about their health care coverage

That's a half dozen "navigators"? (One social worker and five supervisors?)
He’s retiring,probably didn’t want to use obamacare.
Will all these millions that are being spent nationwide to induce people to sign-up be included in the cost of healthcare when Obama claims that his plan is reducing health care costs?
It’s not millions,it’s billions.
the more of these worthless enablers of tyranny or dictatorship or communism, whatever its called, the more of these bums that can be voted out, or that will retire, the better
Wonder what his great-grandfather would think of all this? If this Rockefeller wants to help fund health care he could just write his own check.
Spending it like water flowing from a burst pipe...
Well,when you live on an inheritance,instead of your own accomplishments,you must be careful:)

Ain’t it the truth friend .There are some folks in this world
whose only talent is cashing checks. As I said if ol’”Rocky’’ Rockefeller wants to fund some entitlement he can just cut a check and stop doing with our money. Hells Bells, his great-grandfather at least went around passing out dimes,(the cheapskate).
