If granted, New Jersey's application for a federal Comprehensive Medicaid Waiver will enable the state to craft a program that can better meet the needs of older adults and people with disabilities. But numerous implementation issues remain to be worked through, if high-quality healthcare is to be achieved. To investigate these complex issues, NJ Spotlight brought together state leaders, long-term care providers, and community advocates to discuss problems and possible solutions.
