New Jersey budget would limit expansion of FamilyCare
New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine's budget calls for limiting new adult enrollment in a popular state health insurance program, reversing course on a healthcare expansion he signed into law just nine months ago. The change would backtrack on part of an initiative that some hailed in July as the first step toward universal health coverage in New Jersey. It would also save $9.7 million on a program whose costs have ballooned, just as state revenues deflated.
