Survey: Stakeholders favor health reforms

Posted 3/18/13

PROVIDENCE – Rhode Island residents, small employers, and health care providers are supportive of reforms to the state’s health care system, according to survey and research results presented to advisory groups of the R.I. Health Benefits Exchange on March 7-8.

The survey and other research was conducted for the exchange by Michael Perry of Lake Research Partners, with offices in Washington, D.C., Berkeley, Calif., and New York City. It included focus groups with small businesses and health care providers.

Among the other findings, according to Christine Ferguson, the director of the R.I. Health Benefits Exchange, were:

• Rhode Islanders believe health coverage is too expensive, that there are too many uninsured people, and that care is often fragmented.

• While there is a lack of awareness about the Health Benefits Exchange, once it is explained, the vast majority are interested in using it to find affordable health coverage. •
