HealthRIght's mission is to enact health care reform that ensures high-quality, accessible, sustainable and affordable health care and healthier lives for all Rhode Islanders.
We are a diverse coalition of individuals representing businesses, labor, medical care providers, patients, consumers and public officials who are dedicated to improving the quality of care, controlling health care costs, and providing health care coverage to all Rhode Islanders. We believe Rhode Island deserves a health care system that is sustainable for employers, families, health care providers and institutions, as well as for the state's economy.
