A Patient Navigator began working out of Mary Washington Hospital Oct. 1 to guide the region's residents through options provided by the Affordable Care Act.

The full-time navigator, working for Advanced Patient Advocacy — the firm hired by the federal government to assist residents navigating the Affordable Care Act — is located in the Patient Access office adjacent to the hospital's atrium Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.


The public is encouraged to schedule an appointment with the navigator by using a sign-up sheet at the hospital, contacting This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or calling 540.645.6208. For more information, visit www.enrollapa.com


The navigator is prepared to help people, especially the uninsured, understand options and how to enroll in qualified health plans. The navigator will also help those who speak any language complete the process. As of Oct. 1, Americans can sign up for health coverage on new exchanges created by the Affordable Care Act.
