Measure Aims to Curb Abuse and Help Residents' Reduce Monthly Medicaid Costs
(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Herb Conaway M.D., Tim Eustace, Valerie Vainieri Huttle, Joseph Lagana and Nancy Pinkin to increase efficiency in the state Medicaid program and reduce monthly costs for recipients was approved in the Assembly on Thursday, 67-0.

The bill (A-1951) would establish the Medicaid Smart Card Pilot Program. The pilot program would be designed to reduce average monthly cost to Medicaid for recipients within the pilot program area by an amount that is relative to the costs of implementing the pilot program.

"Many residents rely on Medicaid services for healthcare," said Conaway (D-Burlington). "Developing a more efficient system for Medicaid would preserve the integrity of the program and make it more accessible to those who truly need it. This pilot program would help us discover if and how we may improve the system."
