Low-Income NJ Children Get $23 Million for Health Care

More low-income children in New Jersey will have access to quality health care and will be able to enroll in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) with the help of $23 million in federal funding.  U.S. Senators Frank Lautenberg and Robert Menendez made the announcement today.

“This federal funding will help ensure that all children in New Jersey, regardless of their families’ income, have access to quality health care,” said Lautenberg.  “We have made strides to improve access to health care for low-income families, but there is more work to be done to ensure that more children and all New Jerseyans receive the basic care they need.”

“In New Jersey, we understand that providing children access to health care isn’t simply a matter of allocating resources to a program.  It is also being proactive enough to enroll eligible children in Medicaid and S-CHIP and making sure they receive the benefits that will provide the health care they need,” said Menendez.  “This bonus could not have come at a better time to New Jersey, and I thank all who made this additional funding for our children possible.”

The funding, through the Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services, is a performance-based bonus from the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA).
