Certified Application Training

When: The last Wednesday of every month
9:00 am to 4:00 PM
Where: RI Health Center Association

Certified Application Counselors

The Rhode Island Health Center Association (RIHCA), under its contract with Healthsource RI (HSRI) and the Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS), is offering Certified Application Counselor (CAC) training and subsequent certification to employees of interested agencies. I believe your agency’s clients may benefit from these services.

The Certified Application Counselor Program is a volunteer program for those interested in providing unpaid, in-person application assistance to consumers who want to enroll in health insurance through HealthSource RI. There will be no form of payment from HealthSource RI or the Rhode Island Health Center Association, or any other entity, to the agency or the Certified Application Counselor for this work. Certified Application Counselor agencies must commit a minimum of two individuals in order to be considered as a Certified Application Counselor Agency.

Individuals will receive training from RIHCA and be required to successfully complete a certification test. We are currently having CAC Training Classes on the last Wednesday of every month until further notice, please check with me to see if there is still availability for that month.
