Employers with 50 or more employees or worker dependents enrolled in a New Jersey low-income health insurance program would be singled out annually, under a bill passed last week in the state Senate. The measure comes in response to the growing number of working uninsured who are receiving coverage from the state's FamilyCare program, which was designed to be an insurance safety net for families living just above the poverty line. S. 539 would require the Commission of Human Services to publish a report each year with the employer's name and address; the number of FamilyCare enrollees employed by the employer; the number of FamilyCare enrollees who are spouses or dependents of employees; whether the employer offers health insurance coverage to its employees; and the cost to the state of providing coverage to the employer's employees and their dependents. The bill now goes to the Assembly for consideration.
