Bill Introduced to Require Hospital Employees to Assist the Uninsured to Apply for Insurance
Assembly Bill 4544, introduced in the New Jersey General Assembly and referred to the Health Committee on September 22, 2022, would require hospital employees to determine whether a patient has health insurance before discharge. If the hospital employees determine that the patient does not have health insurance coverage, a hospital employee would be required to assist the uninsured patient with creating an account to apply for insurance coverage through the Federally-Facilitated Marketplace.
