A new program in Rhode Island helps uninsured obtain care
Providence Journal, January 17, 2008
A program in Rhode Island called HealthAccessRI is helping hundreds of the state's uninsured get access to primary care. By charging a low monthly "membership" ($25 or $30), people are able to visit a primary care doctor's practice. Once at the office, the copay is only $10. The total fee for treatments and tests that are needed are covered through the membership.
