Enactment of federal health care reform creates the opportunity to improve health care access, coverage, quality and outcomes for children in New Jersey. The policy forum will convene academic researchers, state healthcare officials, and children’s advocacy groups. It will highlight important research, major provisions of health care reform, and various strategies that New Jersey can adopt as it implements reform - all with the goal of better health care for children.
Key components of federal health care reform that will be examined include health insurance exchanges, new eligibility and enrollment standards, and a new vision for Medicaid and CHIP. These provisions can expand health insurance coverage, improve the quality of coverage, and reduce costs for children and families.
The presentation and discussion format will begin with an overview of compelling research that is shaping the health care debate as it pertains to children. Commentary and questions to researchers by key stakeholders will follow.
This event is presented by the Woodrow Wilson School, the Center for Health & Wellbeing, the Future of Children, Children’s Futures, and Advocates for Children of New Jersey.
