State agencies to host insurance enrollment events March 8

Posted 3/7/14

PROVIDENCE – As the March 31 open enrollment deadline approaches for individuals and families to secure health insurance through the state-run Affordable Care Act exchange, HealthSource RI, Gov. Lincoln D. Chafee announced a one-day event on Saturday, March 8, to encourage Rhode Islanders to sign up for health insurance.

“Rhode Islanders are fortunate to have expanded access to several affordable health care choices through HealthSource RI,” Chafee said in a statement. “This day-long event will offer help and guidance through these complex and important insurance decisions.”

The R.I. Department of Behavioral Healthcare, Developmental Disabilities and Hospitals will partner with the Mental Health Association of Rhode Island and the Rhode Island Parent Information Network on March 8 to host a series of enrollment events throughout the day at three different locations around the state.

Representatives from the Rhode Island Parent Information Network and the Mental Health Association of Rhode Island will be at the Anchor Recovery Center in Pawtucket from 9 to 11 a.m.; at the Department of Behavioral Healthcare offices in Cranston from noon to 3 p.m.; and at Harrington Hall, a local homeless shelter in Cranston, in the evening.

The representatives will assist Rhode Islanders looking to obtain health insurance, including those eligible to enroll in Medicaid. HealthSource RI’s outreach team will also host an enrollment event on Saturday, from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. at AS220 in Providence.

“We hope all Rhode Island individuals and families will take advantage of these opportunities to get covered as the March 31 end of the open enrollment period approaches,” said Christine Ferguson, executive director of HealthSource RI. “Our contact center specialists are available seven days a week to walk you through the enrollment process.”

For more information about the enrollment events, contact Deb Varga at the Department of Behavioral Healthcare at dvarga@bhddh.ri.gov or call (401) 462-0192.
