ASERT has compiled resources for those with autism and those who care for people with autism relating to the current COVID-19 outbreak.
The U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Service (CMS) has again awarded a consortium of Pennsylvania mental health organizations a grant to continue the successful Health Insurance Marketplace Navigator Program. This marks the third time the CMS has funded the consortium—comprised of Pennsylvania Mental Health Consumers’ Association (PMHCA), Mental Health Association in PA (MHAPA), Mental Health America of Westmoreland County (MHAWC), and the Advocacy Alliance—for the Navigator program. This most recent grant is for the next three years.
Navigators help individuals in Pennsylvania understand the Health Insurance Marketplace and Medicaid/HealthChoices and complete eligibility and enrollment forms. They are also available to speak at organizations, agencies, and other groups across the state about the ACA and healthcare options available through the Marketplace. Navigators are specifically trained to help people who need behavioral health coverage, although anyone in Pennsylvania may contact a Navigator for assistance, whether or not they need coverage for behavioral health services.
