The organization has signed up more than 2,300 people through MNsure since the start of open enrollment in October, and has spent hours training new MNsure navigators on unique challenges of reaching those who are homeless, who have never been insured or who have disabilities or language barriers.

Its 12 navigators are working evenings and weekends to help as many people as possible meet the March deadline

“We’re just running out of time, said Lozano. “There are not enough hours in the day to do the things we need to do.”
