TAMPA, Fla.–Federal health officials have cut money to non-profits that help people get insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

The full 20. Original media available.

In the past, the University of South Florida Navigators have received as much as $5.9 million to provide that service. 

Further on.

"We’re going back and look at our plans," said Katie Roders, Navigator Project Manager at USF. "I think being innovative and creative is going to be very important. We may be looking at virtual appointments. We may be looking outside the box to see how we can meet our consumers needs as best as possible."

The cut in funding could also mean fewer enrollments, an increase in health care costs, or possible cuts in the overall program.
