Understanding Rhode Island’s Health Benefits Exchange

Health insurance exchanges are new marketplaces, intended to create a more organized and competitive market for health insurance by offering a choice of plans, establishing common rules regarding the availability and pricing of insurance, and providing information to help consumers and small business better understand the options. Rhode Island is leading the nation in the creation of its Health Benefits Exchange, but still questions remain as to the effect this new portal will have on delivery, cost and plan development.
