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 = 1,683,479
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Medicaid enrollment has grown dramatically. Ohio reports one in four residents are now enrolled. If we apply that rate to New Jersey, then we could see another 300,000 – 400,000 new Medicaid enrollees by July 2020.
