Headquartered in downtown Providence, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Rhode Island offers Rhode Islanders member services, plans and programs, healthcare information, health links, and career opportunities.

Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI) will host a ribbon cutting ceremony and grand opening celebration at its first-ever retail location in Rhode Island—the Blue Advantage Center—on Thursday, Oct. 17 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Cowesett Corners plaza in Warwick. The event is free and open to the public.

The Blue Advantage Center is available for Rhode Islanders to purchase a health plan for themselves or their family, explore their Medicare options or get assistance with their current BCBSRI plan.

Since the Center’s soft opening on September 23, over 70 community members have visited the location. In addition to handling plan purchase transactions, the Blue Advantage Center creates an accessible environment for community members to learn more about their options in the face of healthcare reform.

BCBSRI’s President and CEO, Peter Andruszkiewicz will offer brief remarks on the retail shift in the health insurance industry and the emergence of consumer driven healthcare in the age of healthcare reform.


Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island is the state’s leading health insurer and covers more than 600,000 members. The company is an independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association. For more information, visit or follow them on Twitter @BCBSRI
