New Jersey governor’s copay plan assailed

AP/Philadelphia Inquirer, June 3, 2008
Advocates say New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine's plans to require copayments from low-income New Jersey residents for prescription drugs and some emergency room visits would hurt the mentally ill and developmentally disabled. Corzine has proposed Medicaid patients pay a new $6 copay on emergency room visits that are not a true emergency, and a $2 copay on prescription drugs. The moves are part of Corzine's proposed $2.9 billion in budget cuts meant to try to fix state finances.
