A Conversation With HealthSource RI's Ferguson On Enrollment, Prices, and The Future

A couple of deadlines tied to Obamacare are coming up. One of them for people signing up for coverage that starts January first … that deadline is the day before, December 31st. That’s less than two weeks away and so Rhode Island Public Radio’s health care reporter Kristin Gourlay sat down with Christine Ferguson, the director of Rhode Island’s health insurance exchange at her busy office in the statehouse to talk about how enrollment is going, what kinds of choices consumers will have next year, and why Ferguson believes getting more Rhode Islanders enrolled will help HealthSource RI negotiate better prices.
