What is OHIC?
The Office of the Health Insurance Commissioner (OHIC) was established by legislation in 2004 to broaden the accountability
of health insurers operating in the state of Rhode Island. Under this legislation, the Office is dedicated to:
1. Protecting consumers
2. Encouraging fair treatment of medical service providers
3. Ensuring solvency of health insurers
4. Improving the health care system's quality, accessibility and affordability
The Office sets and enforces standards for health insurers in each of these four areas.
