Supporting ACA/Medicaid Expansion Enrollment in Essex County, New Jersey

September 2014

Marsha I. Atkind, Executive Director and CEO, The Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey

The goal of the Affordable Care Act—to provide access to health care to virtually all Americans through affordable health insurance that covers all essential services—coincides with The Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey’s mission to bring quality, affordable health care to the most underserved and vulnerable people in its community. New Jersey opted to become a federally facilitated exchange state and, at the same time, to expand Medicaid eligibility. These decisions posed both challenges and opportunities for those on the ground working to bring insurance to the greatest possible number of the state’s 650,000 uninsured.
