HealthSource RI’s ‘halo effect’ may affect more state efforts

To the Editor:

HealthSource RI represents an effort by the state under federal health care reform laws and regulations to improve the quality of benefits and competitiveness of the individual and small group markets (“United’s marketplace may be first to challenge HealthSource RI,” Feb. 5).

These efforts have a halo effect, extending to products sold both within and outside of HealthSource RI. It’ll be interesting to see how the cost of this effort is funded, and whether those who benefit indirectly outside of HealthSource RI will be asked to contribute to it.
