Contact New Jersey’s Decision Makers on May 28th and 29th and Tell Them that Medicaid Co-pays are Wrong for New Jersey!

Medicaid beneficiaries have extremely limited incomes. Their financial struggles are even more difficult with the increasing costs of food, gas and home energy. If co-pays for prescription medications are enacted, these individuals will struggle even more. They will be forced to make possibly life-threatening choices between getting needed medicines and paying for other necessities, such as food. Co-pays must be removed from the FY 2009 State budget to truly give these individuals the coverage they need, to prevent their health from deteriorating and to avoid the resulting high costs, which the State will need to pay, of emergency room visits and hospitalizations.
