Assembly Panel Approves Oliver & Prieto Bill to Expand Medicaid Coverage for Hundreds of Thousands of Low Income Residents
Feds to Cover Majority of the Cost Under Affordable Care ActLegislation sponsored by Assembly Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver and Assembly Budget Committee Chair Vincent Prieto that would expand Medicaid coverage for some of New Jersey's poorest residents was advanced by an Assembly panel on Monday.
"Studies have shown that states that have expanded their Medicaid coverage over the last decade have vastly improved their mortality rates and overall public health," said Oliver (D-Essex/Passaic). "With the help of the Affordable Care Act, we have the opportunity to improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of low-income New Jerseyans at a relatively small cost to our state."
