New Jersey health insurance

Garden State rounds out Top 10 of healthiest states, according to annual ranking

new-jersey guide to health insurance editors
June 20, 2014

How healthy is living in New Jersey? The state is ranked the 10th healthiest state to live in according to the 2013 edition of America’s Health Rankings® by the United Health Foundation.

Why New Jersey was ranked #10

Factors that affecting New Jersey’s ranking included both good and bad news: Air pollution has decreased over the past five years, and so has the rate of preventable hospitalizations and cardiovascular-related deaths.

At the same time, the prevalence of both smoking and obesity in the state has worsened slightly.

For more details see the United Health Foundation’s latest findings on New Jersey.

Trust for America’s Health is another source for key New Jersey health quality findings.

In addition, 2010’s federal health reform, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), included the creation of a prevention fund to provide more than $16 billion over the next 10 years to invest in effective, proven prevention efforts, like childhood obesity prevention and tobacco cessation, and the site has a report on how it impacts New Jerseyhere.
