HSRI’s extended Open Enrollment period begins today and runs through January 31, 2022 with huge savings on health coverage available to most Rhode Islanders.
EAST PROVIDENCE – Open Enrollment through HealthSource RI, Rhode Island’s health insurance marketplace, begins today November 1, 2021 and runs through January 31, 2022 to help connect Rhode Island residents with high-quality, low-cost or no-cost coverage for 2022. Thanks to the federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), coverage through HealthSource RI is now more affordable than ever.
“Thanks to the American Rescue Plan Act, health coverage is more attainable than it’s ever been before. If you don’t think you qualify for help, or if you’ve been on the fence about getting covered, now is the time to contact HealthSource RI.” said HealthSource RI Director Lindsay Lang. “Right now, 43% of HealthSource RI customers are paying less than $10 in monthly premium costs. This year, our Open Enrollment period is extended through January 31, 2022 to ensure as many Rhode Islanders as possible can connect with financial help and enroll in the coverage they need.”
“As we reflect on the past year and a half, and all of the challenges our state has navigated throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, being able to offer Rhode Islanders high-quality coverage at little or no cost is of the utmost importance,” said Governor Dan McKee. “Focusing on our health and wellbeing has perhaps never been more important than it is now, and thanks to our federal partners and the American Rescue Plan Act, coverage through HealthSource RI has never been more affordable.
Residents have until December 23 to pick and pay for coverage that starts January 1. The last possible day to enroll and pay for a 2022 plan is January 31, for coverage that starts February 1, 2022.
