Options on the Health Insurance Marketplace in Rhode Island
When shopping for plans on HealthSource RI, you should keep the following tips in mind:
- Consider the monthly premium. Do you qualify for assistance?
- Review the deductible. Remember that you’ll have to shoulder many of the costs upfront until you meet the deductible and insurance kicks in. We can help determine the best cost for your unique situation.
- Do you want to keep your current provider? Pay special attention to which doctors you can and cannot see before buying a plan.
- You can’t just enroll any time. You need to decide on the plan you want to buy during the Open Enrollment Period. You may be able to enroll outside of this time if you are eligible for a Special Enrollment Period. Contact an agent to learn more.
