Announcing…

October 11, 2011

We’ve made a fantastic late addition to the RI Public Radio and the Rhode Island Foundation community forum on the state’s health insurance exchange.

The list of experts was already impressive- Lt. Governor Elizabeth Roberts, Health Insurance Commissioner Chris Koller, and Peter Andruszkiewicz the President and CEO of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Rhode Island.  But now we’re adding an out of state perspective to the discussion.

Glen Shor, the executive director of the Commonwealth Health Insurance Connector Authority (Massachusetts’ version of a health insurance exchange) will be joining us.

Here’s his complete bio, taken from the Health Connector ‘s website.

Glen Shor is the Executive Director of the Commonwealth Health Insurance Connector Authority, an independent authority established by Massachusetts’ landmark health reform legislation to help promote access to affordable health insurance for the Commonwealth’s residents and small businesses.

In this role, he works with the Connector’s Board of Directors to develop and implement a number of programs and policies that are foundations of health care reform in Massachusetts.

Before joining the Health Connector, Shor was Assistant Secretary for Health Care Policy and Deputy General Counsel within the state’s Executive Office for Administration and Finance, where he was a leading policy point person for the implementation of health care reform in Massachusetts.  In that role, Glen was deeply involved in the issues and operations of the Health Connector, the financing of health care reform, and major initiatives to promote health care cost savings.  He has also served as senior policy director and counsel for the state Attorney General’s office, where he focused on health care, energy and housing issues.

He holds a law degree from Harvard Law School and graduated from Yale University with a B.A. in history.

Remember, the forum is NEXT Wednesday, October 19th from 5:30pm to 7:30 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Warwick. Seating is free, but spaces are limited. Reserve your spot by emailing  rsvp@rifoundation.org or call 401.427.4000.
