NJ implementing universal health care coverage for children, including unauthorized

August 20, 2021

A bill signed into law earlier this summer by Gov. Phil Murphy creates a system of universal health care coverage for tens of thousands of New Jersey children, including unauthorized citizens.

Now, the state and partner entities are working to get the word out, so that families who consider coverage to be too costly know that there’s a new route to take.

“A lot of the families with uninsured kids aren’t necessarily savvy about the complexities of the U.S. health system and what their kids may be eligible for, and reaching them is a real challenge,” said Joel Cantor, director of the Rutgers Center for State Health Policy.
