Ohio House clears health "navigators" bill

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio lawmakers moved quickly Wednesday to pass a bill setting training and certification requirements for the so-called "navigators" -- advisors who will help consumers use the new health insurance exchange system.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) calls for states and the federal government to work to provide access to exchanges, or Web-based health insurance supermarkets, to individuals and small employers by Oct. 1, 2013. The exchanges are supposed to help individuals and business owners use new tax subsidies to buy from a menu of affordable, high-quality health coverage.
