COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich has signed Ohio Senate Bill 9, a measure that will set training and certification for “navigators.”
Navigators are the advisors who are supposed to help consumers use the new Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) health insurance exchanges.
PPACA calls for the exchanges to start enrolling individuals and small groups in health plans Oct. 1.
Kasich signed S.B. 9 into law Tuesday.
Earlier Tuesday, Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor expressed support for the rules. Taylor leads Ohio’s insurance department.
