    MONTPELIER — The organization helping Vermont prepare for the federal health care reform has hired groups to help people navigate the system.

    Vermont Health Connect announced Tuesday it had awarded $2 million in grants to organizations that will provide in-person enrollment assistance for health care coverage.

    The organizations will manage people who will be trained and certified to provide direct assistance to individuals, families and small businesses.

    The groups, called “navigators,” will help ensure that Vermonters know what changes are coming and have access to the tools and resources they need to apply for health coverage.

    Vermont Health Connect is a marketplace where individuals, families and small businesses can make side-by-side comparisons of private health plans and find financial help to pay for care.
