Welcome to the Big Bend Area Health Education Center (Big Bend AHEC)’s Navigator/Health Insurance Marketplace. Big Bend AHEC’s Navigators provide outreach and enrollment services to individuals seeking to enroll in health care coverage in the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace.

We assist consumers with confidential telephone and virtual online enrollment services and provide public education and outreach activities at locations throughout the state and throughout our 14-county service area. Big Bend AHEC Navigators are trained and able to provide free and unbiased help to consumers as they search for health coverage options through the Marketplace, including completing eligibility and enrollment forms.

Call us today for information on eligibility and to schedule an appointment for Special Enrollment. You qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) if you’ve had certain life events, including losing health coverage, moving, getting married, having a baby, or adopting a child. If you qualify for an SEP, you usually have up to 60 days following the event to enroll in a plan.

Open enrollment has ended.  However, special enrollment is ongoing. Register now to schedule an appointment by entering your information in the “Get Covered Connector” box below or by calling one of our Navigators at 850-728-6001 or 1-877-813-9115. To learn more about Covering Florida, visit
