'It's Devastating,' ACA Navigator Responds to Latest Cuts From Trump Administration

Jul 17, 2018

The Trump administration took another swipe at the Affordable Care Act recently in announcing that it's cutting funding to ACA 'navigators' 72 percent, from $36 million to $10 million.  In North Carolina, the cut is even more severe: an 85 percent cut from $3.4 million to $500,000.  That will hurt the efforts of navigators to help get people enrolled in health insurance.  Jackie Kiger is an attorney and ACA navigator with Pisgah Legal Services serving western North Carolina.  She spoke with BPR's Jeremy Loeb.
