Debrief: The Debate Over Sustaining HealthSource RI

State lawmakers have plenty of competing priorities to consider as they wrap up the legislative session. One of those is what to do with the state’s health insurance exchange, HealthSource RI. Health care reporter Kristin Gourlay joins host Dave Fallon to talk about the lively debate that's developed around this question of whether to keep HealthSource going or scrap it and default to the federal health insurance exchange, healthcare.gov. Kristin and Dave delve into what's at stake, what the state stands to lose or gain if we pull the plug on the exchange, and who's weighing in on those questions.

HealthSource RI director Christy Ferguson believes the state should not join the federal exchange.
