This issues the State of Rhode Island has experiences with the roll out of the new computer system designed to integrate all human services offered to all eligible Rhode Island residents has been well documented.

The more important thing for Rhode Islanders who need Medicaid is that they understand the rules and regulations to qualify, and that they file the application timely and accurately and comply with the program. Even though the state struggles with the administration of the program, nothing has changed the rules for Medicaid eligibility. Thus it is perhaps more important that today, individuals receive strong, competent advice as to qualification and application for benefits understanding that the state is struggling to transition the administration of the program for the future.

Medicaid is a program that has asset rules and medical eligibility requirements.
