HealthSource RI has seen a huge increase in call and walk-in volumes as the January 1 enrollment deadline approaches.

Director Christine Ferguson said Monday that, "Rhode Island has extended its deadline for enrollment to Dec. 31 for coverage that begins on January 1. Individuals and families have until Dec. 31 to choose and enroll in a plan, while small employers must select a plan by Dec. 27. As these deadlines approach, we're experiencing high call volumes and high walk-in traffic at our Contact Center."

According to Ferguson, in the first two weeks of December alone HealthSource RI saw an additional 2,820 Rhode Islanders and 38 small employers sign up for coverage.
