Though New Jersey has been accused of many things, from funky smells to poor sanitation, the one shining part of the Garden State has been their health insurance market.
New Jersey health insurance companies cannot turn down or reject individuals for health insurance coverage. That means as a Guarantee Issue state, you will never be refused access to health care, unless you can’t afford it. Of course the great caveat, is who can afford it nowadays?
You are even allowed to decline an employer’s coverage if it is more expensive then a New Jersey individual health insurance policy due to a contribution percentage being high.
Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, coverage is more reasonable as the government awards tax credits to a large window of low-to-moderate income Jerseyites, helping pay for premiums and care.
New Jersey also offers a state continuation of coverage for employers with fewer than 20 employees. 12 months of continuous coverage is available.
