New Way to Determine Eligibility

DHS, EOHHS, and HealthSource RI worked together to design Rhode Island’s new, state-of-the-art eligibility system. This web-based system determines eligibility for Medicaid, Human Services Programs, and other forms of affordable healthcare coverage using a single, streamlined application.

Self Service Screening functionality provides the general public with the ability to determine potential eligibility for the following public assistance programs: 

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

Cash Assistance (RI Works, General Public Assistance, Refugee Cash Assistance)

Medical Assistance

Medicare Premium Payments

Child Care Assistance Program

Long Term Services and Supports

General Public Assistance – Burial Services

State Supplemental Program

The Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) administers the publicly-funded Medicaid program. Medicaid is an important source of coverage for low-income families with children, pregnant women, elders and persons with disabilities and special needs who otherwise might not be able to pay for or get access to affordable health care. Rhode Island took the option under the federal Affordable Care Act of 2010 to expand Medicaid to adults between the ages of 19 and 64. The State also chose to establish its own health insurance exchange to make sure other forms of affordable coverage are readily available to Rhode Islanders who need it.
