Helping New Jersey’s Uninsured

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is touting his support of the State’s 107 Federally Qualified Health Centers.

“Since I’ve become Governor, funding to these centers has risen by 10 million dollars, because I want to make sure our health care centers can serve them, and that no one needs to be turned away” said Christie during a visit to the Metropolitan Family Health Network in Jersey City today, with State Human Services Commissioner Jen Velez.

The Governor pointed out his fiscal year 2014 budget calls for $50 million in funding for FQHCs, so everyone, even if they’re uninsured, unemployed or homeless has a place to go to receive steady, consistent health care.

“FQHCs are a critical element to the health care infrastructure for under-insured and uninsured New Jersey residents,” said Human Services Commissioner Velez. “With the expansion of Medicaid, we are building on reforms to the program that were underway, emphasizing prevention and coordination of care so that clients get the services they need to stay healthy.”

During his Budget address last week, the Governor announced he is also expanding Medicaid coverage.
