What's Next In Health Care: Opportunities For State-Based Reform

Planet Princeton — April 27, 2019

New Jersey made great strides in closing the coverage gap under the ACA. But despite these achievements, access to quality, affordable health care is still out of reach for many New Jerseyans. Of our 9 million residents, 700,000 remain uninsured; the majority of whom are low income and immigrants. Those who are insured continue to struggle with the high cost of coverage and care. To address this, we must look at ways to simultaneously expand access to affordable, high quality, coverage and care and address high prices, unnecessary cost drivers and out-of-pocket costs that contribute to making health care unaffordable.

What steps can New Jersey take to expand access to health coverage to more of our residents and lower health care prices? What opportunities are there at the state level for expanding access to affordable health coverage to more of our residents?

Join us for a presentation and discussion of state reform options. Learn about the opportunities and challenges and how you can get involved.

Department of Health Commissioner Shereef Elnahal will join us for Saturday's program!
