healthcare-lead

The Obama administration added millions of dollars to ObamaCare’s enrollment push Thursday, a surprise move designed to help bolster participation in new insurance plans.

The Health and Human Services Department (HHS) announced $67 million in funding for “navigators,” which are people and community groups who will help people make sense of their options under the healthcare law.

HHS had initially said navigators would receive $54 million in grants, but officials said they pulled an extra $13 million from the healthcare law’s prevention fund to help broaden the reach of the program.
