13 Nov: Bryant Measure Would Allow Medicaid And Family Care Recipients To Purchase Employer-Sponsored Insurance

TRENTON – The Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee today unanimously approved a measure sponsored by Senator Wayne R. Bryant, designed to provide assistance to Medicaid and Family Care recipients and allow them to buy into employer-sponsored health insurance programs.

“This measure is about providing quality insurance coverage for adults and children, in the most cost-effective way,” said Senator Bryant, D-Camden and Gloucester. “We all know that health insurance is a necessity, and this bill would allow the State to make sure that citizens have access to premium health care while helping to save State dollars.”
