Office of Health Care Affordability and Transparency

Governor Murphy announced in his 2020 State of the State Address the creation of the Governor’s Office of Health Care Affordability and Transparency, with the objective of guiding the Administration’s work on health care affordability and accessibility for consumers and cost transparency. The Office is responsible for developing policy initiatives and programs to advance these goals and works closely with the Departments of Human Services, Health, Banking and Insurance and Treasury to implement a variety of strategic initiatives to achieve these goals. The Director of the Office is also Chair of the Health Care Affordability Interagency Working Group, established per Executive Order #217.

On December 21, 2021, Governor Murphy signed Executive Order #277 to launch the Health care Affordability, Responsibility, and Transparency (HART) Program. This program sets a path for more affordable, quality health care for New Jerseyans through annual cost growth benchmarks and transparent study of health care cost drivers.
