RIHCA - Rhode Island Health Center Association

Become a Certified Application Counselor Agency

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.

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 to training 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. 

Upcoming Certified Application Counselor Trainings have been scheduled for:
Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Interested agencies should complete a letter of agreement and application and have both signed by the agency’s executive director/chief executive officer. Forms should be returned to Julie Lange at jlange@rihca.org. Agencies whose applications are approved will be notified within one week of the receipt of application, and will subsequently be notified regarding training dates and other program details.
