Protect Consumers! Take Action and Defend the New Jersey Health Benefits Exchange Act!

Please Show Your Support for the NJ Health Benefits Act and Stand Up to the Insurance Companies

BlueWaveNJ —Tuesday, February 21, 2012

Monday, February 27th, the New Jersey State Senate Commerce Committee will hear testimonies on S1319, the "New Jersey Health Benefits Act". We need you to attend the testimony hearing to show our Senators that we will not allow insurance companies to dismantle the cosumer protections in this bill. This act will ensure consumer protection and promote competition among insurers while helping small business owners purchase lower cost private insurance by providing easy to understand data about plans that they can compare online. It also calls for a governing board of independent experts who are free from any conflicts of interest as well preventing insurance companies from "cherry-picking." This is a big step forward to creating a working private insurance marketplace for New Jersey's citizens.

To read the bill: http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/2012/Bills/S1500/1319_I1.htm

Please contact Jeff Brown of NJ for Health Care at jeff@njcitizenaction.org if you plan to testify in support of the legislation, or would like NJHC to put in support slips for your organization.

The Senate hearing will take place at the New Jersey State House Annex, 1st Floor, Committee Room 6 at 1PM.
