Rhode Island's Health Coverage Mandate

All Rhode Islanders must have qualifying health coverage beginning January 1, 2020. Failure to have such coverage in 2020 may result in a Rhode Island personal income tax penalty in 2021. So now's the time to plan ahead.

Rhode Island residents can enroll in new health insurance or renew their coverage for 2020 with Rhode Island's health insurance exchange -- HealthSource RI. For more information, including details about the current open enrollment period and about how eligible Rhode Islanders can receive financial assistance to lower the cost of health insurance, see

Open enrollment began November 1 and ends December 31. But you must pick your plan and pay for it by December 23 in order to get coverage starting January 1, 2020.
