In its first 11 days of operation, Oct. 1 through Friday, HealthSource RI fielded 62,000 unique website visits.
Of these visitors, about 5,500 started accounts (created a username and password) and 1,698 completed their applications and selected a health insurance plan.
These numbers were released Saturday by Christine C. Ferguson, director of the agency.
HealthSource RI is not saying how many of the 1,698 who completed applications are small businesses (a key focus of the exchange) nor how many qualified for Medicaid.

Correct me if I’m wrong but are the quotes they are receiving only an estimate? Are they waiting for more enrollees before they can give an actual price? Guess they’ll find out in January.
“Correct me if Im wrong but are the quotes they are receiving only an estimate? Are they waiting for more enrollees before they can give an actual price?”
I too am dying to know the answer. It seems that the final cost and therefore the “final” price, must be predicated on how many of what type of potential claimant sign up. Too many needy pre-existing conditions and the cost will be DEATH SPIRAL high. Lots and lots of socially conscious young folks who are dying to sacrifice their personal income, a new car, savings for a house, and their futures to make this a success will drive the price for all those needy people lower. Come on young, healthy, selfless sprites, where are you?
Yeah, Rhode Island isn’t doing well.
Rhode Island is the most depressing state to drive through. There appears to be nothing there that can create wealth, and a lot of state and federal dependence.
The entire state has an air of disrepair.
But how many paid???? That is the only number that counts.
Lots of reporters and ‘community organizers’ are registering to see how the system works, but will not be paying.
At that rate they will have completed applications for the entire population of Rhode Island in only 18 1/2 years.
Then they can start actually registering people and selling insurance polices to them.
Have Medicaid requirements been lowered, why wouldn’t those that qualify not already be on Medicaid? Old and poor, right?
But it is a small state.
