Navigator Registration Information
The Agent and Adjuster Licensing Office is responsible for overseeing the registration of navigator entities and individual navigators. In accord with Senate Bill 1795, passed during the 83rd Texas Legislature, the commissioner set standards by rule ensuring that navigators are qualified to perform their duties.
All navigator forms have been updated to improve the application process. The registration forms are available on our forms page at http://www.tdi.texas.gov/forms/form11.html#navigator. Note that renewal forms are available for current navigator individuals, entities and designated responsible party/persons. The renewal forms are streamlined so that applicants will not need to re-submit some items. The forms must be completed using Adobe Acrobat® Reader, version 9.0 or later.
An individual navigator is defined as an individual performing the activities and duties of a navigator as described by Insurance Code Chapter 4154, 42 USC §18031(i), or any regulation enacted under 42 USC §18031(i). A navigator entity is defined as an entity performing or overseeing an individual’s performance of the activities and duties of a navigator as described by Insurance Code Chapter 4154, 42 USC §18031(i), or any regulation enacted under 42 USC §18031(i).
The commissioner adopted rules related to the regulation of navigators for health benefit exchanges on January 21, 2014. The adopted rules are located on TDI's website at http://www.tdi.texas.gov/rules/2013/documents/navadoptionorder.pdf.
