About The Meridian Navigators

Meridian offers Healthcare Navigators to help community members explore and participate in the Healthcare Marketplace, www.healthcare.gov, free of charge in Alachua, Dixie, Levy, Gilchrist, Baker, Bradford, Union, Hamilton, Suwannee, Columbia and Putnam Counties.

The Affordable Care Act will enable 23 percent of uninsured and eligible Florida residents to gain access to quality, affordable healthcare. Central to this goal is the creation of the Healthcare Insurance Marketplace. Through the Marketplace, eligible persons will be able to enroll in a health plan to get coverage.

Open Enrollment for 2017 has ended; but, you may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period!

Meridian Navigators are available year round to help you with the Affordable Healthcare Marketplace and the Affordable Care Act. Free educational events are taking place throughout North Central Florida. Make an appointment to talk to a Navigator today!

To contact a Navigator, email navigator@mbhci.org or call (844) 652-5981.
