There are three distinct roles within the Assister Program: navigators, certified application counselors, and brokers.
- Navigators are grant-funded by the State of Vermont to assist anyone within the community who request assistance with their health care coverage.
- Certified application counselors (CACs) are non-funded positions who assist the clients of their employer, which is most often a provider or community-based organization.
- Brokers are licensed health insurance brokers who provide assistance to small businesses and individuals, and who also charge a fee to the customer for their assistance.
