Getting In-Person Help with Enrollment
In Rhode Island, if you need help understanding your options for coverage under Obamacare or signing up for a plan, you can get free assistance from a certified Navigator or from a certified agent or broker.
Navigators can explain your options, answer your questions, and help you apply for the plan you choose -- but they can’t legally recommend a specific plan for you. Private insurance agents or brokers are allowed to offer suggestions about particular plans.
