The federal exchange navigators will have a lot of work ahead of them, and a few at the very top will get paid up to $48 an hour.

According to newly released projections from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the federal navigators hired to help Americans buy insurance on the coming exchanges will provide 1.7 million "help" sessions a year.

The new CMS navigator reporting system would affect only the navigators in states with all-federal, "federally facilitated exchanges," and the states with federal-state "state partnership exchanges."

CMS prepared the navigator activity projections when estimating the cost of the CMS-10463 navigator reporting program. CMS came up with the cost estimates to comply with federal Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 requirements.
