Study: Number of NJ Uninsured Plummets

 A new study finds the number of uninsured adults in New Jersey plummeted as people signed up for the new federal health insurance exchange.

The Health Reform Monitoring System, which did polls across the country, found that 13 percent of New Jersey residents who are 18 to 64 years old lacked insurance in March. That’s down from 21 percent in September 2013 before signups for the exchange began.

The study, founded by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the Urban Institute, found New Jersey’s drop was in line with regional trends.

The figures do not include the full serge of sign-ups in March and April.

The federal government says 162,000 people in the state registered for the exchange. Medicaid rolls have also grown.
