Full Affordable Care Act Enrollment Would Bring Huge Benefits to NJ

Full Affordable Care Act Enrollment Would Bring Huge Benefits to NJ

COMMENTARY/OPINION

With 2015’s Affordable Care Act open enrollment period soon coming to a close, a new analysis suggests reaching full enrollment would secure health coverage for over a million New Jersey residents while pumping over $5 billion in federal funds a year into the Garden State.

The report, released today by New Jersey Policy Perspective (NJPP), finds there has been great progress thus far in the Medicaid expansion (NJ FamilyCare, where the state is 76 percent to full enrollment and 122,000 potential enrollees remain) and that the greatest opportunity lies with reaching individuals purchasing insurance plans on the federal marketplace (where it is only 30 percent to full enrollment and 499,000 potential enrollees remain).
