The New Jersey General Assembly is considering a proposal that would place burdensome new requirements on the referral and transfer of patients from NJ facilities to out-of-state hospitals. This legislation could harm patients’ ability to access potentially lifesaving, specialized health care services in a timely manner.
Please consider contacting your state legislator today and asking them to preserve patients’ access to quality medical care.
New Jersey families experiencing extraordinary health care circumstances should have access to the most appropriate care possible regardless of the location of the hospital. In a crisis, critical care teams should be focused on the best treatment options for their patients — and this proposed legislation would create needless barriers to timely and potentially lifesaving care.
Please consider contacting your legislator and asking them to vote NO on A-5369/S-3816 as currently written.
