Governor Christie’s Decision to Accept Federal Funds to Expand Medicaid Coverage is Good for New Jersey!
Governor Christie made a decision today that is good for New Jersey. Consumer health advocates, including Advocates for Children of New Jersey (ACNJ) praise Governor Chris Christie’s decision to accept federal funds to expand affordable and quality health care to more New Jersey residents through the Medicaid program. This decision will make a real difference in the lives of many hard working New Jerseyans.
Who will benefit? Hard working people in food service, day care, construction and more who do not earn enough to buy health insurance, many of whom are parents; victims of Hurricane Sandy who have lost their jobs; college graduates who have been unable to find full-time work; and seniors who’ve retired early and are not yet eligible for Medicare.
