First of all, the link that you have labelled as being “fox news” does not go to fox news, it goes to something called “american overlook”. It is an undated and unattributed article.
Second of all, there have been no “recent” laws passed in Georgia. The 2013 session of the Georgia General Assembly ended on March 28.
Here is a link to information on House Bill 198:
Here is a link to a “real” news article from back in April that gives much more information:
“...Georgia is among about 20 states attempting to restrict a key outreach program for the Affordable Care Act...”
“...The bill would require those who want to serve as navigators or provide advice about enrolling in the health insurance exchanges to be licensed and to have not less than 35 hours of instruction in health benefit insurance, in how the exchanges work and knowledge of Georgia Medicaid and PeachCare...”
“...Whether the laws can be enforced is another question. Proposed federal regulations on implementing the navigator program published earlier this month note that while navigators must meet state licensing or certification requirements, those requirements should not prevent the application of the provisions of the Affordable Care Act...”
Hi Repeal, I hope you are well.
Thanks for the links. It looks like the Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner will stop any Navigator in Oklahoma. https://www.agencyequity.com/news/863-oklahoma-commission-criticizes-the-navigator-program-as-it-lacks-credentials
