Healthy plan in N.J.

Posted: January 23, 2012

NEW JERSEY is moving forward with plans to comply with the national health-care law.

That's according to an analysis by the Associated Press, which finds three out of four uninsured Americans live in states that haven't finalized a plan for affordable medical care.

States are expected to be partners with the federal government in implementing a plan to extend coverage to the uninsured by 2014. An important part of the law calls for health insurance exchanges, new one-stop supermarkets with online and landline capabilities for those who buy coverage individually.

The analysis divides states into four broad groups: those that have adopted a plan for exchanges, those that made substantial progress - which includes New Jersey; those where the outlook is unclear, and those with no significant progress.
