It could be a lot tougher to get help enrolling in Obamacare this fall.
More than 8 in 10 groups that assist people with enrollment say they are getting less federal funding from the Trump administration, according to a new report from the Kaiser Family Foundation, a non-partisan research organization. These groups, known as navigators, provide outreach, education and enrollment assistance to those applying for policies on the Obamacare exchanges or for Medicaid.
Navigators knew that the program was going to take a hit. The Trump administration announced in late August that it would reduce their funding by 41%. The 98 groups received a total of $37 million for the upcoming open enrollment season, which runs November 1 through December 15.
