Sixteen health insurance navigators, trained and certified by the federal government and the state of Oklahoma Insurance Department, are ready to provide free, local help to Oklahomans with questions about health insurance, including assistance enrolling in a policy through the Federal Health Insurance Exchange, also known as the Marketplace. 

The corps of Navigators is comprised, for the most part, of attorneys and paralegals employed by Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma (LASO), the statewide non-profit organization which received the current Navigator grant to provide outreach and enrollment assistance.

This year’s open enrollment period, the six weeks in which consumers may sign up for a new health insurance policy through the Marketplace and/or make changes in their current coverage, began Nov. 1 and continues through Dec. 15.

The Navigator is the Norman area and is Denise Bakewell. She is located in
