Obamacare enrollment climbs in New Jersey

January 13, 2017

After three tumultuous years — during which insurers entered and exited the market, new types of coverage were offered, premiums rose and website problems were overcome — the market for those who buy their own health coverage appears finally to be settling down.

“We’re off the roller coaster,” said Joel Cantor, director of the Rutgers Center for State Health Policy. “The market is becoming more predictable.”

This week, however, Republicans in Congress plan to take the first steps toward repealing the health care law, a move that throws into question the future of the market created in each state and the health coverage of millions of Americans. Republican leaders have declared repeal to be the top priority of the incoming administration.
