PHRC has State Certified Navigators and Certified Application Counselors, at both the Manhattan and Queens locations. KCS’ navigators are fully trained to guide individuals, families, and small business owners to get health insurance on the New York State of Health Marketplace, through various options including the Affordable Care Act, Essential Plan, and Medicaid. Moreover, PHRC has ACA Certified Navigators for New Jersey on Federal Marketplace with support from the Asian & Pacific Islander Americans Health Forum (APIAHF) and Orange ACA Navigator Project (OACANP).  We work with partner organizations to provide the wider Asian American community with culturally and linguistically appropriate materials and information in a prompt manner. Our partners include Korean American Senior Citizen’s Association, Somhang Presbyterian Church, and JASSI and the Japanese American Association (JAA). During FY 2015, PHRC assisted approximately 4000 individuals with obtaining and renewing public health insurance.
