How much will health insurance cost you next year? Well, you’ll find out soon. Health insurers have submitted their plans for next year, including how much they want to charge customers and what benefits those plans will include.
In Rhode Island, it’s the office of the health insurance commissioner that reviews those plans and decides whether to approve or reject them, or ask for some changes.
Doctor Kathleen Hittner oversees the process. She spoke with Rhode Island Public Radio health care reporter Kristin Gourlay in the studio to talk about how she’s trying to keep premiums in check.
