How to buy insurance on New Jersey’s open marketplace
More than 2 million people have applied for insurance on the state’s marketplaces since March, with New Jersey the state that’s been the biggest beneficiary.
The numbers will be released Tuesday.
“We are pleased to announce that we will begin releasing information about our newly-created marketplaces,” New Jersey Gov.
Chris Christie said.
“We have a unique opportunity to build on the progress made to date and to help more New Jerseyans get the coverage they need to thrive and create a better future for their families and communities.”
New Jersey, which is one of three states to run its own exchange, is expected to have the biggest impact in the first quarter of 2019, when more than 15 million people will have insurance.
The other two states are New York and California.
New Jersey is also the state where the largest number of people have signed up for coverage so far, and the state with the largest uninsured population.
The average number of residents who have signed-up for insurance has more than doubled, to nearly 5 million, from about 2 million last year.
