State of the State RI

Guest: Anya Rader Wallack, Director - HealthSource RI, HealthSourceRI.com
Host: Richard August Time: 30 minutes
The cost, performance and future funding of HealthSource are discussed. The new Director of the state-run health insurance exchange, under Governor Raimondo, has been given the task to keep HealthSource RI operational at a cost less than of replacing it with the federal exchange. To help accomplish this, a tax on health insurance premiums has been imposed. Other topics include 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; and more.
