NJAMHAA Applauds Gov. Murphy’s Priorities of Health Care and the Economy

January 14, 2020

Statement from Debra L. Wentz, PhD, President and CEO

Governor Murphy's leadership in preserving key elements of the Affordable Care Act by establishing a state based healthcare exchange in New Jersey protects the children and adults who NJAMHAA members serve, as well as the workforce that the system employs. Equally important is the Administration's goal to reduce consumers' healthcare costs. These are critical steps that show meaningful foresight, given the unpredictable future of the Affordable Care Act.

In addition, Gov. Murphy's emphasis on integrated health care aligns perfectly with NJAMHAA's focus on treating children and adults holistically. We are encouraged by Gov. Murphy's acknowledgment of all substance use disorders and mental illnesses and we look forward to having additional resources to address the increasing needs for residents with these and other health challenges.

We look forward to continuing to work with the Administration to improve health for New Jersey's children and adults.
