Health Insurance Marketplace

CareNet’s licensed and certified navigators can provide free assistance to any northwest Ohioan enrolling in federal Health Insurance Marketplace or Medicaid health plans. Marketplace open enrollment for 2023 plans is from November 1 through January 15, and residents need to enroll by December 15 for coverage to start January 1.

Navigators can provide free assistance in-person, on the phone, or via a virtual meeting to residents of 21 northwest Ohio counties. CareNet is a member of the Ohio Association of Foodbanks’ navigator consortium, which serves 77 of Ohio’s 88 counties.

CareNet has navigators who speak English, Spanish and Arabic. Please click here to schedule an appointment or call 1-833-628-4467.

When meeting with a CareNet navigator, residents should bring photo identification and income verification, preferably last year’s tax return. They also should bring insurance coverage information for everyone in their household.
