The New Jersey Hospital Association’s Health Research & Educational Trust of New Jersey is employing former U.S. servicemen and women and training them to assist consumers who are exploring new insurance options under the Affordable Care Act. Twenty-five veterans will be hired for the program. They will complete a federal Web-based training program to become Certified Application Counselors (CACs), plus additional training on state-based programs including NJ FamilyCare. Once certified, the veterans are deployed in hospitals and community sites across the state to answer consumer questions and offer enrollment assistance.
