Countdown to Health Coverage Workshop

The Rhode Island Health Coverage Project recently hosted an interactive workshop about new health insurance coverage through Medicaid and the Health Insurance Exchange. Nearly 200 staff of community based organizations and agencies participated, and provided feedback on outreach strategies that would best inform their communities of new coverage that will soon be available.
