New Jersey tightens oversight of healthcare program
AP/Philadelphia Inquirer, June 17, 2008
New Jersey has moved to keep the wealthy out of healthcare programs for the poor after a state audit found people earning as much as $295,000 enrolled in taxpayer-funded health programs created for low-income people. The state Assembly has approved legislation requiring the state to verify applicants' incomes. The Senate approved the bill, so it needs only the governor's signature.
