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 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 = 1,685,556
In New Jersey, Medicaid continues to support Women’s Health and Family Planning. Governor Murphy included $20 million in the proposed Full Year 2021 budget to support the PlanFirst family planning benefit that was introduced in 2019, providing coverage to individuals not previously eligible for Medicaid.
