HealthSource RI expands call center hours to Saturdays, plans to host enrollment fair


PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island — Rhode Island's health insurance exchange says it's expanding its call center hours and hosting another enrollment fair.

The HealthSource RI call center is opening from 8:30 a.m. until noon on Saturdays in January to make it easier to enroll. It's normally open on weekdays.

The exchange also added an enrollment fair Thursday from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Sheraton Providence Airport Hotel in Warwick to give Rhode Islanders another opportunity to get help signing up for coverage and to avoid a federal tax penalty for not having coverage in 2016.

The exchange hosted a fair in December to answer questions and help new and renewing customers. About 300 people attended.

The annual open enrollment period ends Jan. 31.

The call center can be reached at 1-855-840-4774.
