N.J. to Join Federal Health-Care Exchange, Christie Says

Governor Chris Christie said he gave formal notice to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that New Jersey will join a federally administered exchange in 2014.

Today was the deadline for states to join the federal system, declare a state-federal partnership or create their own. Christie, 50, a first-term Republican seeking re-election, said in a statement that his administration “is committed to meeting our obligation to comply with the Affordable Care Act, but only in a manner that is the most effective and efficient for the residents of New Jersey, and the businesses that will carry the costs of this new program.”
