The Medicaid Policy Center (MPC) is dedicated to advancing the quality and cost effectiveness — and long-term sustainability — of the New Jersey Medicaid program to improve the health and wellness of New Jersey residents.
The MPC delivers independent research, analysis and policy solutions to improve health outcomes while also controlling costs — and works in partnership with other organizations and the state government agencies that operate the New Jersey Medicaid program.
The new center benefits from the Quality Institute’s tradition of bringing people from all corners of health care together to collaborate on innovative solutions to improve the state’s health care system.
Total New Jersey Medicaid beneficiaries = 1,694,173
Did you know that in July 2020, NJFamilyCare, the state’s Medicaid program, is delivering a new policy that will eliminate payment to providers for deliveries that aren’t medically necessary? Elective deliveries before 39 weeks of gestation can pose both short and long-term health risks for a newborn. This is just one of the many new maternity initiatives that NJFamilyCare will be rolling out in the upcoming year, designed to help ensure that moms and babies get the highest quality and safest care.
