MA4, designated as an official “Navigator” organization by HHS, will begin its work immediately. The network will be prepared to assist individuals interested in new health care insurance options available through the new “exchanges” by October 1, 2013 when enrollment officially opens. The deadline has been extended to December 23, 2013.
