Cover Montana

T

The Cover Montana project works to connect Montanans who have questions about enrolling in health insurance options with a local enrollment enrollment assister who can walk them through the process. Enrollment assisters are located at Health Centers, Urban Indian Organizations, hospitals, Indian Health Service, Tribal Health, and other organizations. In the fall of 2021, MPCA was awarded a CMS Navigator grant to provide statewide outreach and enrollment assistance. Visit the Cover Montana websitecovermt.org, to learn more about coverage options and to find free, confidential local enrollment assistance.

MPCA also provides training and technical assistance to the broader outreach and enrollment stakeholder community. Trainings are done via monthly webinars, monthly office hours, and MPCA’s annual Cover Montana Summit. Stay in the loop, sign up for the Cover Montana email list. Information about all Cover Montana and MPCA webinars is also available on the calendar.

Visit covermt.org to learn more and find local enrollment assistance.
