NSNJ Podcast: The Affordable Care Act and New Jersey
With the enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act having recently opened, we look back to June of 2015, when the Supreme Court of the United States issued a six-to-three decision in the matter of King vs. Burwell. Most significantly, that ruling ensured the continuation of tax-credit subsidies for New Jersey’s residents, enabling thousands of citizens to retain their coverage.
Statistics indicate the implementation of the Affordable Care Act has decreased the number of New Jersey’ uninsured citizens to the lowest percentage in 25 years, while also delivering several other benefits to our population.
Joining New Start New Jersey for a discussion of the Affordable Care Act’s past, present and future is one of the state’s and the nation’s leading experts on the subject, Dr. Joel Cantor, Director of the Center for State Health Policy and Distinguished Professor of Public Policy at Rutgers University.
