The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services awarded the United Way of El Paso County a federal grant to enable certified Navigators to assist consumers as they apply for and choose new health insurance options, and to find the most affordable coverage that meets their health care needs. The Coalition has educated and assisted thousands of El Pasoans with the Health Insurance Marketplace. This collaborative is led by the United Way of El Paso County and consists of local government, non-profits, academic, business, faith-based, hospitals, federally qualified health centers, and other health care organizations.
