Healthcare Navigators 

Able South Carolina’s Healthcare Navigators can provide individuals with disabilities and their family members with FREE, immediate assistance in finding appropriate and affordable medical insurance! Our staff can help you to understand your options for Marketplace Insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and/or small business insurance (SHOP). In the Marketplace, you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period 60 days after certain life events occur; including marriage, birth of a child, out-of-state move, and/or loss of other health coverage. Our staff can help you review and compare health plan options and find out if you are eligible for financial assistance, which can help pay monthly premiums and reduce out-of-pocket costs!  Remember that all of our services are FREE and enrolling in a plan is not required—we are simply here to help you!

Steps to Your Health (STYH)

Steps to Your Health is a ten-week course that covers basic information about healthy eating and exercising.  Participants are weighed and measured the first week and asked to set goals they would like to accomplish by the end of the program.  Each session lasts approximately 1.5 hours and ends with an exercise activity that can be adapted for individuals with all types of disabilities. At the end of the course, participants can see how their bodies changed and evaluate their progress toward reaching their goal.
