In October 2013, the Federal Patient Protection Care Act created health insurance advisors called Navigators, Certified Application Counselors, and In-Person Assisters that would be tasked with the responsibility of assisting consumers, small businesses, and their employees as they look for health coverage options through the Marketplace. Under HB 198, which was passed into law passed by the Georgia State Legislature in 2013, these health insurance advisors are required to obtain a license from the Georgia Department of Insurance before operating.
The functions of a health insurance advisor may vary slightly under federal law, however only one license must be obtain from the Department of Insurance, which will be deemed as a Navigator. Additionally, all health insurance advisors must also obtain federal Navigator certification through the federally-created insurance exchange.
