The Center is working with the NJ Department of Banking and Insurance on a series of analytic activities to inform the planning of a Health Insurance Exchange in New Jersey under the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act (ACA). As part of this project, the Center recently completed thirteen stakeholder forums around the state with providers, consumers, insurance carriers, employers, and brokers. The purpose of the forums was to learn more about the stakeholders' views regarding the critical issues that should be considered in the Exchange planning process. The second activity pursued within this project was a brief on-line stakeholder survey designed to obtain input on key Exchange issues. Lastly, the Center will submit a paper estimating the number and the demographic and health characteristics of NJ residents who will be eligible and who are likely to enroll in Medicaid/FamilyCare and subsidized Exchange products (through individual and small-group Exchanges) in New Jersey, by category.
