WASHINGTON, D.C. (PIX11) — If you’re a healthcare professional who’s pretty savvy when it comes to Obamacare, then the federal government wants you!

As part of new regulations to assist Americans choose the right Obamacare options for their families and needs, officials are scouring the country for what they call “navigators.”

In some cases, these navigators can earn up to $48 an hour —  a far cry from the standard minimum wage of $7.25 — all to assist consumers in getting a better understanding of the benefits they are signing up for.

From translating in their preferred language to breaking down jargon, navigators will basically navigate you through the  so-called ‘Obamacare experience.’

It’s not clear exactly how many navigator spots need to be filled, but the plan is to have them out and about starting October 1.
