The Center for Consumer Information & Insurance Oversight (CCIIO) has posted a grant application aimed at individuals and organizations that want to be "navigators," or ombudsmen, for "federally facilitated exchanges" (FFEs).

CCIIO, the arm of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) overseeing U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) efforts to implement the insurance provisions in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) has about $54 million in navigator grant funding available.

Some states are setting up their own exchanges and their own navigator programs.

CCIIO -- pronounced "Sih-Sigh-Oh" -- is setting up HHS exchanges and navigator programs in some states, and it is sharing duties by setting up "partnership" exchanges in a few states.
