State of the State RI

Guest: Justin Katz, R.I. Center for Freedon and Prosperity, rifreedon.org
Host: Richard August Time: 30 minutes
Katz has been tracking the progress of HealthSource-RI, the state version of the federal health insurance exchange. The cost, performance and future funding of HealthSource are discussed. Other topics include what happens should the state join the federal system; HealthSource serving as a single access point for all types of state assistance and social services; the great increase in Medicaid enrollment through the exchange; the effect of future changes in Medicaid funding; health insurance tax credits; new tax on health insurance premiums. Most of these result in a greater burden on taxpayers, concludes Katz.
