About 350 area residents are expected to seek help getting health insurance this year, creating a bigger burden on the reduced number of Navigators who provide that help.
Reduced federal funding for the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, means Thrive Allen County hired just three Navigators this year, down from six last year, according to Kelli Frazell, director of health programs with Thrive.
The change means Thrive will offer help by appointment only at their office at 9 S. Jefferson Ave., with special hours on select Saturdays and at the Humboldt Library. Thrives phone is 620-365-8128.
