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
Several New Jersey laws to improve maternity care go into effect over the next 6 months, including Medicaid payment for doulas, Centering, and elimination of payment for early elective deliveries. Understanding these county trends help us to better recognize areas of disparity and inequity, as well as areas of strength and those that need improvement. Take a look at our report, New Jersey Maternity and Pediatric Health Trends County-Level Review to learn more. Together, we must continue our efforts to improve the critical measures included in the report, which not only include health outcome measures, but also include enrollment rate for lead screening and vital social service programs.
