In order for Obamacare to be successful, uninsured people will have to seek out insurance. Because choosing an individual plan is not simple — and because there’s lots of paperwork to figure out if you’re eligible for Medicaid or subsidies — there will need to be counselors to help people through the maze.
The first posting for jobs related to that effort is on line now. Each of the jobs ends April 30, 2014.
All have an application deadline of February 8. Resumés and cover letters should be sent to:
