Our Navigators

NJHA’s Health Research and Educational Trust first launched its veteran navigator program in 2013 to hire former U.S. servicemen and women and train them to assist consumers in exploring new insurance options under the Affordable Care Act. Since then, they have continued to help N.J. residents access services to support good health, from insurance enrollment to mental health care.
