Rhode Island House Committee on Finance
The Rhode Island Health Benefits Exchange Act
May 28, 2014
Chairman Gallison and members of the Finance Committee.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to testify. My name is Josh Archambault, and I am a Senior Fellow at the Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA), a non-partisan think tank focused on health care and welfare issues at the state level.
While FGA is located in Florida, I am based in Boston, and have spent nine years studying the successes and failures of the 2006 Massachusetts health reform law (Chapter 58 of the Acts of 2006) commonly called “RomneyCare.” My research has often focused specifically on the state-based exchange, called the Connector in the Bay State.
