    Consumer assistance program, also called CAP

    Some states have consumer assistance programs to help you find health insurance and assist you if you have a problem. The goal of a CAP is to make health insurance less confusing. It can help you:

    • Enroll in a plan

    • Sign up for financial aid to help pay for health insurance

    • Understand your rights

    • File an appeal if your health plan says it won’t cover a service
