Need Insurance?
Families in need of health or dental insurance are encouraged to find a plan! Financial help may be available including tax credits, as well as free health and dental insurance through Medicaid, including RIte Care/RIte Smiles.

  • Dental Insurance for children: Commercial pediatric dental insurance is offered in two ways on HealthSource RI in 2016:
    1. Dental benefits are packaged together with a medical plan, or
    2. Dental benefits are offered separately as their own plan.

When choosing a commercial pediatric dental plan, be sure to consider the cost of premiums, deductibles, and co-pays, as well as covered benefits and participating dental providers. 

Dental Insurance for adults: Commercial adult dental insurance is only offered as a separate dental plan on HealthSource RI in 2016 (dental benefits are not offered as part of any medical plan). No financial assistance is available for any adult dental plan. When choosing commercial dental plan for yourself and your family, be sure to consider the total cost of premiums, deductibles, and co-pays, as well as covered benefits and participating dental providers. 

Already have Insurance? - Commercial coverage (this applies to families who are not covered through Medicaid.)

  • Families who were covered (health or dental insurance) through HealthSource RI in 2015 need to renew now!
    • Families are encouraged to follow the directions outlined in their mailed renewal packet.
    • Review your assigned plan carefully to understand your network, the costs (premium, co-pays and deductibles) and the benefits to decide whether you want to stay in this plan or choose a different plan.
    • Families and individuals are also encouraged to select and pay for their insurance by January 23 to ensure they have coverage beginning on February 1.

Medicaid/RIte Care/RIte Smiles
If you are eligible for Medicaid, you can enroll in no cost coverage at any time – you do not need to enroll before the end of the Open Enrollment period.

If you are already enrolled in Medicaid, including RIte Care or RIte Smiles, please watch your mailbox for renewal information. This will be sent to you two months before your renewal date.
