Parents Can Still Enroll in Health Insurance Coverage
Many of the parents who lost RIte Care coverage due to the income eligibility "rollback" in December have not enrolled in coverage for February. Their coverage through NHPRI Value ended on January 31st.
Parents can still apply for coverage. Parents should be encouraged to apply because they may still be eligible for RIte Care under the new income counting rules that went into effect on January 1 (see more information below).
Parents not eligible for RIte Care have until March 31st to apply for commercial coverage through HealthSource RI for 2014. If they miss this deadline, they will have to wait until November 15th to enroll in coverage for 2015. People eligible for RIte Care can enroll at any time.
Parents can apply online at www.HealthSourceRi.com, or fill out a paper application, available to print from the EOHHS website. (Paper application also available in Spanish).
Parents can get help enrolling in coverage. See our New Flyer for more information, including a list of drop-in sessions where they can get assistance. Flyer also available in Spanish.
Please print the attached Flyer and Spanish Flyer, post it in waiting rooms and give to parents. If you can forward this to your clients via email, please do so.
